FASHION AND BREXIT QUESTION TIME

Monday, 29th of April
6.30pm - 10pm
Sunbeam Studios

If you are worried about Brexit, confused about it’s implications to your business, employment or personal life, or don’t know where to start when looking for information, let Fashion Roundtable help you with an opportunity to ask experts your most burning questions.

Fashion Roundtable are hosting our Fashion and Brexit Question Time evening on 29th April 2019 at the gorgeous Sunbeam Studios in West London, the leading sustainable studio in the UK.

If you are worried about Brexit, confused about it’s implications to your business, employment or personal life, or don’t know where to start when looking for information, let Fashion Roundtable help you with an opportunity to ask experts your most burning questions.

At Fashion Roundtable we understand that the UK has over 90,000 small to medium sized, yet world class, innovative fashion businesses. Many of us cannot afford to pay for expert legal, economic and logistics teams, or expensive Brexit strategy consultants. We do not have the resources, the information is confusing and we just don't have the time, or expertise. Our Fashion and Brexit Question Time will provide access for you and your business to our panel of experts to address and answer your Brexit concerns at a fraction of those costs.

Our Fashion and Brexit Report data highlights that 96% of the £32.3bn fashion sector voted Remain and like the rest of the UK, 3 years since the EU Referendum we remain confused, concerned for their businesses and future freedoms. 
Our event aims to address and answer these issues.

Confirmed speakers include:

Dr Lisa Cameron MP Member for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow, SNP Spokesperson on Mental Health and Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Textiles and Fashion

Professor Swati Dhingra Associate Professor of Economics at the LSE and Economics Expert at Fashion Roundtabe.

Dr. Simon Usherwood Deputy Director at UK In A Changing Europe

Alison Cole Senior Trade Mark Attorney at Urquhart-Dykes & Lord LLP

Hari Prabu Policy and Events Officer at the Creative Industries Federation 

Chaired by Tamara Cincik CEO and Founder of Fashion Roundtable.

Guests can submit questions in advance toadmin@fashionroundtable.co.uk for our expert panel to answer at the event. 

Event catering is available to pre-order from Sunbeam’s own well-renowned kitchen providing delicious and sustainably sourced vegan meal boxes. Drinks are available to purchase on the night. If you have any dietaries, please get in touch: catering@sunbeamstudios.com
