Lou Stoppard chairs a panel on the repercussions of the Brexit vote on the fashion industry, joined by Nick Knight, Fashion Roundtable founder Tamara Cincik, adviser Munira Mirza, CEO of the UK Fashion & Textile Association Adam Mansell and designer Phoebe English.

Nick Knight"There are certainly people in Westminster who don't see it your way, who want to take up the drawbridge and have a little England."


Tamara Cincik, Eszter Kantor, Samuel Nicholls, Navjyot Lehl and Karen Binns further discuss the effects of Brexit on the Fashion Industry, as part of the Fashion Roundtable Initiative. In-keeping with SHOWstudio's ethos of international awareness and our reach to a global audience, Nick Knight opens conversation into the repercussions of the Brexit vote on the fashion industry.

 

Eszter Kantor: "Think about what you are going to do with the freedom. And freedom is a lonely thing. Freedom is ultimately perceived as isolation."


Lisa Cameron MP, Chair of the APPG for Textiles & Fashion: question to the Prime Minister on the consideration of fabric and fashion industries post Brexit.

 

Dr. Lisa Cameron MP: "The UK’s textile and fashion industry contributes £28 billion annually and textiles are a significant contributor to our Scottish economy. I am chair of the all-party group on textile and fashion. The industry is concerned about the passporting of goods and of highly specialist services, so how does the plan protect creative industry services? Will the Prime Minister do this and ensure no fashion faux pas going forward?"


There are still many unknowns about what will happen to the fashion industry after Brexit. We intend to turn the unknowns into a way forward. Watch our Brexit and The Impact on the Fashion Industry Paper launch filmed at SHOWstudio.

 

"Our analysis together with Assay Corporate Finance puts a Hard Brexit at a 38% loss to GDP. We have over 90% fashion SMEs (thats's small to medium sized enterprises in the UK and I don't think they could take that hit."
