Haymarket Media Group, the organiser of The Clothes Show, has confirmed that the event will return to Liverpool next year and that will be held on 19-21 October 2018 at St George’s Quarter.
The show will be taking over St George’s Hall, St John’s Garden and the Empire Theatre bringing together everything in fashion and beauty all in one place.
Nicola Darling, show manager, commented; “We are extremely excited to get our plans underway for next year’s event and bring the show to life once again in Liverpool.
“Following feedback from our visitors and exhibitors, the new pre-Christmas date, at the start of the new academic year, is the preferred time of year and will also allow us to further support our educational audience.”
The first Clothes Show launched in 1989 in London on the back of the 90s television programme, The Clothes Show, presented by Jeff Banks, Selena Scott and Caryn Franklin.
Due to overwhelming visitor turn-out since 1990 the event relocated to the NEC Birmingham, until 2016.
The Clothes Show moved to Liverpool this year as a three-day immersive and interactive fashion festival.
Visitors to The Clothes Show 2018 will have access to the Designer Catwalks, Inside Fashion Talks from industry experts, and shopping in the Designer Showroom featuring pieces from top designer names and selected boutique labels.

Every ticket to the show will include access to The Fashion Theatre which will take place in Liverpool’s Empire Theatre situated opposite StGeorge’sQuarter.
The award-winning 45-minute performance will feature live music acts, dancers, models and will be the place to discover Autumn Winter trends, ahead of the festive season. A highlight among visitors for the past 28 years, the fashion-meets-music spectacle is not to be missed.
The Clothes Show’s dedication to supporting young creatives in the industry will continue with content previously known as The Creative Hub returning on Friday 19 October.
The one-day programme, hosted in StGeorge’s Hall, is designed to inspire, nurture and educate budding young talent from across the country.
Wendy Simon, Assistant Mayor for Culture, said; “It was great to welcome The Clothes Show to Liverpool in 2017, and we can’t wait for it to come back next year. 2018 is a big year as we celebrate 10 years since being European Capital of Culture, and in a city which loves fashion this event is a perfect fit.”
