Emma Harrowing, Director of the NFW board, said: “We’re proud to say that NFW16 featured some really strong looks and some of the best shows to date. But that doesn’t mean we have been resting on our laurels. We are determined that NFW17 will create even more of a buzz in the city. All the events are designed to celebrate and promote Norwich’s vibrant fashion scene and they all bring style to life with a combination of wearable looks and catwalk inspiration.

“NFW is a Community Interest Company and all those behind the annual event work on a voluntary basis. One of our key aims is to continue to positively promote, support and provide valuable opportunities for the creative community of Norwich. We hope as many people as possible will join us during NFW and enjoy being a part of the city’s largest, annual fashion event. Every year the week gains more kudos and it is really helping to promote Norwich as a fashion-forward location.”
