Based on the same set up as an international fashion week, Runway works by bringing new, innovative designers to Gibraltar as well as putting local designers on display, often for the very first time in their career.
After having a hiatus year in 2017, Runway has moved to be a bi-annual event, cemented in Gibraltar summer festival season.
While the format has been slightly tweaked, the festival remains a culmination of local and international designers, models, crew, and production. As always, with a huge focus on allowing the local fashion community to work alongside the internationals who exclusively fly in for the weekend.
Along with local and international fashion designers, Runway also runs a New Designer Competition, where three designers compete to win a solo show at Runway and start their career internationally either via a fully funded show or an internship.
2018 is Runway's biggest year yet; with three international designers showing, the New Designer Competition giving out the prize of an international internship, UK based singer/songwriter Blair Jollands playing in the lounge and two local designer shows, this will be Runway's fifth anniversary in Gibraltar and one not to miss!

20.00 - GAIL HOWARD (Gib)
Fresh from her win as Runway NDC (New Designer Competition) winner in 2016 and her London Fashion Week debut in 2017, Gail Howard is back on the Runway catwalk with a new collection exclusive to the festival and never seen before in Gibraltar. Gail has grown from strength to strength in her design ability and her loyal fan base will be at the edge of their seats to see her newest creations.
|Blair Jollands will be in the Runway Lounge during our dinner break Runway Fashion Festival 2018
20.30 - BLAIR JOLLANDS (UK)
This year, Runway will be putting the dinner break in between the local shows and the
international shows and will play host to one of the UK’s most promising singer/songwriters performing in the lounge during the break.
Nominated for an Emmy award for music composition (yes, that’s right!) for Shackleton,
and a Golden Globe for Alien vs Predator & Pride, plus his BAFTA-nominated Sky Atlantic series Fortitude starring Michael Gambon, Blair Jollands will be in the Runway Lounge during our dinner break! He has worked with Madonna and Rihanna, jammed with Grace Jones and James 'Sparks' Sinclair (Johnny Cash), and collaborated with Gordon Raphael (TheStrokes). Having won the admiration of both David Bowie & Boy George (who released Blair's previous material under the name El Hula), Blair’s music communicates a paradoxical mix of melancholia and optimism that draws the listener in. Often compared vocally to Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright & ScottWalker, Blair has received much praise from the likes of international magazines NME, Guardian, Uncut, Artrocker and more.
Recently returning from a tour of South America and a collaboration with Brazilian group Pato Fu, this will be his first and exclusive live show in Gibraltar.
|Runway’s first international show for Ricardo Andrez Runway Fashion Festival 2018
21.30 - RICARDO ANDREZ (Portugal)
Following a dinner and drinks break in the lounge, Runway’s first international show will be Portuguese men and womenswear designer, Ricardo Andrez.
Hailing from such catwalks as Paris, London, Barcelona and Madrid Fashion Weeks, Ricardo’s style is contemporary, chic and incredibly funky! With a unique take on sporty streetwear style, the Ricardo Andrez collection will be one of the most innovative we have had on the Runway catwalk. This is Ricardo’s first visit to Gibraltar and after seeing this collection, we are pretty certain it won’t be his last.
|Fashion Designer Sadie Clayton back this year for the Runway Fashion Festival 2018
21.50 - SADIE CLAYTON (UK)
The next international to show this year is returning favorite, Sadie Clayton. Sadie showed her Copper Girl collection to the amazement of the Gibraltarian audience in 2015. Her designs stood out as a highlight on our Runway calendar and for this reason, she is back this year - not only to show her incredible new collection but also to be the main judge for the New Designer Competition! Sadie will be wowing the audience again with a twisted take on her wearable art and her inspirational attention to detail.

For Runway 2018’s grand finale, we will be hosting Maltese design duo Charles and Ron for the very first time in Gibraltar. Fresh off the catwalks at Los Angeles and New York Fashion Weeks, Charles and Ron have seen an incredible surge of popularity over the past year. Not only were they invited to display a piece in Buckingham Palace this year (hosted by Naomi Campbell and Anna Wintour!) but they have also been dressing some of the biggest celebrities on the planet!
