Winter has arrived and ‘Cheshire Fashion Week’ is returning to Chester. Having survived the pandemic, Cheshire will be the first county in the North to host Fashion Week in its traditional sense.
This year’s Cheshire Fashion Week will bring fashion brands, models and beauty professionals from all over the UK to Chester. At this annual event, fashion brands, independent boutiques, and designers from across the industry will showcase their fall/winter collections at the Chester Cathedral and Jaguar car showrooms from November 05th to November 06th 2021.
During Cheshire Fashion Week, independent retailers showcase how consumers can achieve runway-like looks at home by promoting a range of fashion and beauty looks. There is a statement of inclusivity and body positivity in this year’s fashion week. The 2021 fashion shows will feature models with alopecia, as well as models of all ages and body types walking the catwalks.
Cheshire Fashion Week’s CEO, Claire Namukolo said:
Whenever there is a fashion week, there is also an auto sponsor involved. As with Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in London and Milan, Mercedes-Benz is one of the biggest sponsors of New York Fashion Week.
Cheshire Fashion Week, in partnership with auto sponsor Inchcape Jaguar Chester, will see the local fashion industry bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic, which has affected businesses, independent retailers, designers, and the broader fashion industry.
Which brands and stars should you be on the lookout for during Cheshire Fashion Week 2021?

A fashion week — a catwalk — dedicated to supporting underrepresented designers and retailers, independent boutiques, the travel, hospitality sector in Chester and championing new talent in the fashion industry. Cheshire Fashion Week will certainly be an exciting event, concluding 2021 on a high note.
Despite Cheshire Fashion Week’s primary location being Chester, future events will be held in every county city in Cheshire by 2024, according to the organizers.
