The Fashion Souk 2009 – present day

The Fashion Souk market-style-event was established in its monthly format as part of Belfast City Council’s Sunday in the City Initiative in February 2010, a big thanks to Adam Turkington who made it possible. With The Ulster Hall on board this really was the golden era with more than 60 stalls every month and up to 1,000 visitors!

This unique shopping experience introduced Belfast to the concept of ‘smarter’ shopping, destigmatising second-hand items and promoting locally crafted fashion & accessories. With regular fashion shows, workshop and craft demonstrations and talks The Fashion Souk paved the way for the upcycling trend that has hit our high street.
