Event Details

In 2018, the fashion industry contributed more than £30 billion to the British economy and employed close to a million people.  These figures underscore the increasing importance of the fashion industry in keeping the UK economy afloat amidst Brexit woes and its tremendous potential to be a part of the solution to several interrelated global challenges, particularly challenges related to sustainability.

While several trends in fashion are shaped in the UK, fashion's impact stretches far beyond the UK's borders as the fashion industry is powered by a vast network of creatives, institutions, manufacturers, artisan communities, and a wide range of stakeholders who are located all over the world.  

This event brings together the designers, policymakers, the business sector, and the academe to discuss the global nature of fashion and how we can unleash the power of fashion to bring porsperity to people around the world and to connect people regardless of culture or creed.
