City shopping destination to host fashion week

Victoria Leeds launches a full fashion week for the city this summer, following the success of last year’s Fashion Weekender.

Victoria Leeds Fashion Week will begin on 6 June, starting with a spectacular fashion show staged in the city centre’s Victoria Quarter from 7.30pm to 8.30pm.

Attendees will be exposed to the latest styles from luxury brands and premium high-street retailers.

A Shop the Look campaign will follow the catwalk show, featuring all the brands participating in Victoria Leeds Fashion Week, many of whom will be running exclusive offers throughout the week.

Entertainment will be provided by some of the UK’s finest artists and performers, as influencers, models, and attendees all rub shoulders.

Harvey Nichols’ Fourth Floor Brasserie will host the official afterparty, where access is exclusively reserved for all ticket holders, starting at 8.30pm and continuing until midnight.

People can also buy VIP tickets to the Fashion Show, which will include special touches such as a chic pre-show experience from 6.30pm to 7.15pm with cocktails and canapés at The Ivy Brasserie.

All profits generated by the Fashion Show will be donated to the charity, Smart Works. Smart Works will also host a pop-up shop from 14 to 16 June in Victoria Gate, officially drawing Victoria Leeds Fashion Week to a close.

Jo Coburn, Victoria Leeds’ senior general manager, said: “We’re so excited to bring back the glamour to Victoria Leeds, and to host such an iconic event under the splendour of Victoria Quarter.

“This will be our biggest fashion event to date, bringing our fantastic retailers and brands together to make a week-long event full of exclusive, sought-after and VIP experiences for our loyal Victoria Leeds customers.”

Tracy Fletcher, chair of Smart Works Leeds, added: “We are honoured that Victoria Leeds are supporting us at Smart Works Leeds.

“Their offer of a ‘pop-up’ space for our next fashion sale is a game-changer for us, as well as including us as part of their amazing fashion show.

“We are so grateful to Jo for her generosity and we are looking forward to developing our relationship over the coming months.”
