The most stylish celebration in town, York Fashion Week, is back for the first time in two years – following a hiatus due to the pandemic.
And for the first time, 2022 will see York Fashion Week take place bi-annually with spring/summer and autumn/winter shows scheduled.
The spring/summer York Fashion Week features more than 20 events across the city from Friday 29 April to Tuesday 3 May.
We’ve put together a guide to six unmissable events during the fashionable festival – including TV’s Charlotte Crosby who will be showcasing her Pepper Girls Club brand with a huge runway, a Festival of Vintage at York Racecourse featuring over 150 hand-picked vintage dealers, and a runway featuring work from students at All Saints RC School.
