According to British Fashion Council, Demand for fashion designers in UK has the possibility to reach a high mount, which would eventually create thousands of fashion related jobs in upcoming years.
In a survey by Oxford Economics for the British Fashion Council, about 8,750 people were engaged at 137 companies making clothes and accessories for the designers who show at London Fashion Week and London Collections Men in 2013. These companies had sales of £1.76bn and contributed £732m to the UK economy.
And moreover, these sales can be improved beyond this level only with proper support and funding.
The method needed to fully realise the prospective of high-end fashion were set out on Tuesday by the British Fashion Council, alongside the UK Fashion and Textiles Association, Creative Skillset, the skills body for the UK creative industries, and retailer Marks and Spencer.
The high-end fashion manufacturing companies were often “invisible”, said Caroline Rush, chief executive of the British Fashion Council. This made it hard for designers to find good quality UK manufacturers and for these niche businesses to obtain the exposure and support they needed to attract customers from the UK and overseas.
Let’s see how its going to be the upcoming years for fashion designers and other fashion oriented people.
