Cultural Style Week is Coming to Sheffield!

Updated: Apr 16

In partnership with Welcoming Cultures we are absolutely delighted to announce exciting launch activities for Cultural Style Week in Sheffield, South Yorkshire! 

Cultural Style Week empowers people to celebrate their heritage through fashion, inviting global participation annually from May 21. Coinciding with the UN World Day for Cultural Diversity, participants showcase their cultural attire online using #CulturalStyleWeek. Following the success of its debut near London's Royal Exchange in 2022, the event expanded in 2023, featuring fashion shows, shopping events, and cultural nights in London, and new launch events in Leeds, Cape Town, and The Hague.

Cultural Style Week is coming to Sheffield with a spectacular launch event and exhibition set to take place in the region's favourite shopping destination Meadowhall, one of the largest shopping centres in the UK. 

Sheffield in South Yorkshire, England is a multicultural and diverse city that proudly welcomes people from all backgrounds and from every part of the world.
