Victoria Leeds Fashion Week to host VIP events at The Ivy Leeds and Harvey Nichols Leeds - plus a super-glam fashion show at the Victoria Quarter

The first-ever Victoria Leeds Fashion Week takes place next month, with Harvey Nichols presenting an SS24 catwalk collection - themed Sicilian Summer - along with brands including John Lewis & Partners, AllSaints and Reiss at a prestigious fashion show set in the historic architectural splendour of the Victoria Quarter.

The week will actually run from June 6-16 and follows the success of last year’s Fashion Weekender. It kicks off on June 6 at 7.30-8.30pm with the fashion show, featuring many of the shopping district’s brands showcasing runway trends of SS24 from ‘90s-inspired, minimalist, oversized tailoring, through sports luxe to the Western Rebel look.

Fashion influencers, models and attendees will mingle before the fashion show at a pre-party with cocktails and canapés at The Ivy Brasserie Leeds, while Harvey Nichols’ Fourth Floor Brasserie will host the official after-party, where access is reserved for fashion show ticket holders. VIP ticket holders can also attend The Ivy Brasserie pre-show event. To buy tickets, visit here
