Victoria Leeds Announces its First Fashion Week

Victoria Leeds shopping centre

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

Victoria Leeds Fashion Week will begin on 6th June, starting in style with a spectacular fashion show staged in the iconic Victoria Quarter at 7.30 – 8.30pm. Showcasing the runway trends of SS24, this inspirational catwalk of wearable wardrobe must-haves will take inspiration from across a plethora of this season’s most lauded designers and the trends they’ve brought to light, from the ongoing domination of 90s-inspired minimalist oversized tailoring, through sports luxe, to ‘Western Rebel’. 

Against the backdrop of beautiful Victorian architecture, attendees will be exposed to the latest styles from a host of luxury brands and premium high-street retailers, representing Yorkshire’s leading fashion destination.

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.

Exclusive Afterparties & VIP Experiences

We’ll see entertainment courtesy of some of the UK’s finest artists and performers, as influencers, models, and attendees all rub shoulders, showcasing their most fashion-forward looks – pulling inspiration from this season’s trends.

Harvey Nichols’ Fourth Floor Brasserie will host the official afterparty, where access is exclusively reserved for all ticket holders, starting at 8.30pm – midnight. Elevate your experience even further with VIP tickets to the Fashion Show, which will include special touches such as a chic pre-show experience from 6.30 – 7.15pm with cocktails and canapés at The Ivy Brasserie.

Fashion for Good: Smart Works Pop-Up

All profits generated by the Fashion Show will be donated to the charity, Smart Works. This UK-based charity is committed to empowering women, instilling the confidence they need to pursue their dreams, change the trajectory of their lives, and achieve their full potential through secure employment and support.

Smart Works will also host a pop-up shop from the 14th to 16th June in Victoria Gate, officially drawing Victoria Leeds Fashion Week to a close. Expect to see clothes from all your favourite brands, with all the money raised helping Smart Works directly.

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, said: 

“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.”
