From education to employment

Northern Fashion Week announced for July 2022

Northern Fashion Week (@NorthernFW) has been announced for 7th – 9th July 2022 at Manchester Central with offsite breakout events taking place earlier in the week (@NTF_UK).

Curated and produced by the team behind New Talent Fashion (the innovative platform pioneering outreach and connectivity for the wider fashion world) – Northern Fashion Week 2022 will provide an essential spotlight on the vast opportunities in the North.

Championing northern talent and developing northern industry, NFW is taking a giant leap to showcase the most talented individuals and game-changing organisations in the fashion, creative and media landscape. Through galvanising the industry and facilitating connections between fashion professionals, NFW will create an immersive environment for art, culture and heritage sectors to collide, bringing together a range of businesses with diversity and inclusivity at the heart of their mission.

NFW will also be working alongside various local university institutes and regional educational providers to support their growth and development, facilitating a sustainable future for the British fashion industry.

NFW intends to deliver an enriching experience and offer its community the opportunity to cultivate industry knowledge and create further positive change. The programme and lineup of catwalks and presentations are designed to support underrepresented communities within the fashion industry – this is an event highlighting the best of the North in all its glory, reinforced by Northern Fashion Week Awards.

From fast networking sessions to workshops and seminars, interactive stands to brand and retail experiences, NFW will answer to the needs of the industry and bring “fashion back to the North”.

Founder CEO of both Northern Fashion Week and New Talent Fashion, Siobhan Clare O’Donnell shares her excitement and drive behind Northern Fashion Week:

“I created Northern Fashion Week to allow northern talent the opportunity to showcase themselves, giving them a fair chance within the fashion industry. Representing the North means to not only represent the talent but also the fabulous thriving industry. And so, Northern Fashion Week aims to celebrate both. The North is my birthplace and the birthplace of many exceptional fashion industrial innovations and inspirational fashion talent.

“Northern Fashion Week stands for the child looking for inspiration, the student hoping for an opportunity, the local business wanting to flourish, the entrepreneur seeking discovery and the individual who stands proud to celebrate the North and all that we have to offer. The Northern Fashion Week vision is built from opportunity, community, innovation, and a love for the North – the drive and passion for creating a space for fashion creatives and the fashion industry to continue to grow.”

Northern Fashion Week (NFW) has been announced for 4th – 9th July 2022, with the main event taking place 7th – 9th July at Manchester Central. Offsite breakout events are scheduled for earlier in the week in major northern cities: Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester.
