Glasgow Fashion Week was setup in 2005 to support the fashion industry in the United Kingdom and Scotland in particular.

Glasgow Fashion Week since its announcement to hold a major fashion week in 2007 has received rave reviews from several leaders in the fashion industry such as All Saints and Debenhams. It has also gained wide spread press and public support in and outside Scotland.

GFW is steadily establishing itself as a young, international and directional alternative to the world's more traditional fashion weeks, focusing on Glasgow's reputation as a stylish city.

Alongside our catwalk show schedule our programme includes fashion events, lectures, exhibitions, retail initiatives and parties.

As well as a showcase for Scottish and International fashion, GFW provides a stage for the growing New Luxury segment, which was initially stuck between existing mainstream trade events and traditional couture weeks. Our Moto is to promote and celebrate creativity and excellence in fashion.
