INTRODUCTION

According to the editorial feature, Google Arts and Culture, it is a well-known fact that the UK and fashion go hand-in-hand. Home to many notable fashion designers, the UK fashion industry contributes immensely to the UK economy. The industry also supports the country’s reputation for creative excellence and is also one of the most diverse industries in the country.

Numerous fashion shows happen in London, the nation’s capital in a year, among which are the London fashion week and Pure London, happening twice a year. These shows are aimed at showcasing the creativity of designers both International and Local. These shows receives hundreds of thousands of visitors yearly both foreigners and locals.

THE GAP

Unfortunately, the Medway community consisting of five cities (Strood, Rochester, Chatham, Gillingham and Rainham) does not currently play host to any of these fashion shows. Fashion designers in this area go to London to get their creativity showcased and many times, the cost of showcasing in these high profiled shows discourages these designers. Medway Fashion Week aims to solve this problem.

The Medway community is blessed with huge Arts and Cultural resources and we believe that it is time to shine the light on these areas especially Fashion. We know that this show will not only promote fashion and fashion designers in Medway, it will also help to develop a strong Arts and Cultural Atmosphere in the area.

OUR SHOW

The Medway Fashion week features upcoming and premium designers of different race and background in and around the Medway area on the catwalk. Other professions linked to the fashion industry are also affected, like the hair and beauty industry involving hair stylist and makeup artist which also have the opportunity to showcase their creativity while working with the stylists and models to create the perfect look for the runway. Performing artists are also featured in between catwalks.

Our Next show comes up on March 5th, 2022.
