Yorkshire Textiles on the Catwalk

Published : July 08, 2014

Yorkshire Textiles were delighted to have been a core part of the UKTI/UKFT Grand Depart Business Festival.  Our Tour de Fleece collection was included centre stage in the fashion show – as featured on a BBC Look North report.  We’re proud that our fabric’s image was used for the official invitation – as well as the back cover of the beautiful event programme.

Thanks so much to UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and UK Fashion & Textile Association (UKFT) for making it happen, not forgetting the support of the Campaign for Wool.

Stephanie Smith wrote a lovely piece in the Yorkshire Post as a prelude to all the excitement – see Le Grand Designs here.
