Fashion week shows are very much-anticipated in cities such as London, New York and Milan, but for the first time, Dundee will be hosting its very own in May 2018.

With a week full of events running from 7th-13th May, each event will showcase the very best of what

Dundee has to offer from high street retailers to independent designers. Event locations include iconic locations around the city including Overgate, McManus Galleries, HM Frigate Unicorn and the Steeple Church.

Dundee Fashion Week was founded by Alexandra Harnett, D&A College Sponsorship Officer and students from the college will be heavily involved in the behind-the scenes running of the show.

Alex said: “The team behind the event is really keen to create a learning legacy for Dundee while promoting the creative industries from around the city.

“We are primarily focusing on independent designers and boutiques to showcase the talent we have in the city.

“If we are fortunate enough to have a year two or a year three, we may then open it up to designers from further afield. The idea came about after learning that each year fashion students at Dundee and Angus college would hold a fashion show in the campus canteen.

“This fashion week, however, will be a chance for them to gain skills in promoting, marketing and networking, which they will need following completion of their studies.”

Overgate is delighted to be the official sponsor of Dundee Fashion Week. As the premier shopping destination in Tayside and fashion-focused shopping centre, Dundee Fashion Week is important to us and we are excited to see local and high street fashion talent take to the catwalk.

Known as the ‘City of Discovery’, Dundee has a positive history built from innovation and creativity. Overgate believe fashion is a huge influencer in society today, used by many to express who they are. This is Dundee’s time to shine, exploring the power of fashion with an educational element.

As part of Dundee Fashion Week, Overgate will host an exclusive event on Thursday 10 May. Full event details are coming soon so make sure you don’t miss out!
