Norwich Fashion Week 2018
Norwich Fashion Week returns 9-17 March 2018
Press Release Sept 2017
Renowned for championing the diversity of fashion in Norwich, from creative design talent, to supporting independent fashion and style boutiques and national and international fashion brands, Norwich Fashion Week is set to return in March 2018 with a fresh new format.
From Friday 9th March until Monday 12th March, Norwich Fashion Week will return to its home at OPEN on Bank Plain, Norwich for four days of catwalk shows, industry talks, workshops and seminars, before the launch of the NFW fashion fringe from Tuesday 13th March until Saturday 17th March.
Norwich Fashion Week directors Alex Hill, Emma Harrowing and Kerry Curl are confident that the new look event will provide more opportunities for creativity when it comes to fashion and style:
“Norwich Fashion Week is now in its eighth year and since it has become a Community Interest Company we have been looking for ways to strengthen the platform it provides local retailers, business and fashion talent in Norwich and Norfolk.
“By condensing the main catwalk shows into four days at OPEN, we hope to highlight the unique diversity of fashion and style we have here in Norfolk, with three main catwalk shows that offer different styles and opportunities to those working or wanting to work in the fashion and style industry, and a day of talks, seminars and workshops from some of the best local and national fashion industry players. The addition of the NFW Fashion Fringe gives retailers and businesses the opportunity to organise their own instore fashion and style events. The aim is to generate a real fashion buzz across the city.”
Norwich Fashion Week launches on Friday 9th March with the NFW launch event and catwalk show at OPEN. The catwalk shows across the weekend at OPEN will feature vintage, streetwear, collections from independent boutiques and high street brands, along with creations from local up and coming designers and makers and established local fashion designers.
The NFW Fashion Fringe is the chance for independent and high street shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, clubs and businesses who want to be associated with the week of fashion and style to get involved in Norwich Fashion Week.
There are also opportunities for business to sponsor key Norwich Fashion Week shows and events. Sponsorship packages are open now.
