The UK Textile and Fashion Industry is one of our largest, worth over £28bn annually and is now reported to be the UK’s second – third largest employer. The industry is crucial to our economy and Government must have a clear understanding of the policies needed to ensure jobs and livelihoods, sustainability and to maintain best practice. We must consider ethical design, diversity within the industry, support regional growth alongside international trade and of course, navigate the impact of Brexit.
