Over the last 10 years the UK fashion industry has met the challenge to evolve from a domestic manufacturing based industry into a design-led industry operating in a global marketplace. However, high end products continue to be made in the UK and 'Made in Britain' is still a strong sales point.
The UK also has a strong design talent, led by our excellent art colleges, which are famous throughout the world. Many UK design students go on to work in global fashion houses and retail chains which promotes both the UK fashion industry and the UK’s worldwide reputation abroad.
