Fashion City York is an initiative to promote fashion retailing and all the facets of Yorks fashion industry.
The idea came from a meeting of retail managers who were discussing the current selection of events held in the city centre.
York has a truly fantastic selection of shops that are beating the recession and staying open despite the tough economic times.
From big brands to independent retailers, international designers to home-grown talent, York has something to offer every fashion-savvy shopper out there.
Not only is the sheer range and diversity of shops impressive, the beautiful surrounds of York city centre and its relaxed cafe culture make York the perfect place to spend a day treating yourself to a brand new wardrobe. Internationally-renowned boutiques sit aside award-winning hair salons and 5* beauty parlours, all within walking distance of world-famous attractions such as York Minster, the National Railway Museum and Jorvik Viking Centre.
Fashion City York is here to promote this incredible range and diversity of fashion shopping through regular events in the city centre and collaborative projects between retailers throughout the year.
