Cardiff Fashion Week 2024: Everything you need to know

The biggest event celebrating fashion design and retail in Wales is back – with Cardiff Fashion Week 2024 promising an exciting array of activities including Wales’ first digital catwalk.

An exiting line-up of events has been scheduled across the city for the week from 20-27 April. As well as the showing of Wales’ first digital catwalk, there will be a model competition, fashion shows, a pop-up fashion village and even a drag show to bring fashion lovers together from across the country.

One of the highlights of the celebration will be the fashion village and catwalk shows at Cardiff Masonic Hall on Saturday 27 April which will see a variety of independent designers, boutiques and brands showcasing their collections.

The event will support A-Sisterhood, a South Wales-based not-for-profit organisation which helps support, empower and protect women worldwide. Funds from the event will be distributed by A-Sisterhood to a number of female-related charities including Cardiff Women’s Aid which is dedicated to fighting for equality, ending violence against women and girls, and supporting those who experience it.

Other events in the week include a VIP launch celebrating Wales’s first digital catwalk in association with the fashion department at the University of South Wales;  a catwalk competition to fundraise for Cardiff Fashion Week’s charitable partner, A-Sisterhood; and a drag show to find the Welsh entry to the international drag event Queen of The Palace.

Cardiff Fashion Week is being organised by marketing and event management professionals, Natalie Collins and Paula Abbandonato, who have more than 40 years of experience in the field.

Paula Abbandonato said: “Cardiff Fashion Week is a platform to celebrate all that is great about Welsh fashion retail and design. We’ll see a mix of aspiring designers and established professionals rub shoulders with educators, influencers and retailers. It’s important that fashion professionals have the opportunity to showcase their talents on their doorstep and we are looking forward to seeing what creatives in design and the supporting industries have to offer this year. ”
