Partners

BACCfortheFuture

Fashion Roundtable supports the #baccforthefuture campaign because we know the value: economic, cultural and for the future talent pipeline, of a generation of students educated in the arts.

The creative sector is thriving, 1 in 11 of us work in these industries with fashion leading this exciting growth.

The jobs of the future will need us to be critical and creative thinkers: all the skills learnt by a STEAM education.

But while other countries are pumping money into creative education, the unintended consequence of the UK’s Ebacc is a  16% decline to art and Design GCSE uptake in 2 years.

That’s not future-proofing our economy or our international reputation. In combination with Brexit, with its call for the reduction in immigration, we need to ensure our domicile talent is well educated across all skills sets, to remain innovative, global leaders.

Creative Industries Federation

Creative Industries Federation

The Creative Industries Federation is the national organisation for the UK’s creative industries, cultural education and arts, providing an authoritative voice in a way never done before.

The creative industries are the fastest growing sector of the UK economy spanning advertising and architecture to video games, performance to publishing, and all the creative disciplines recognised in official statistics - as well as associated areas such as heritage. They are worth £87.4bn GVA. The creative sector also has huge intrinsic and social value.

We are entirely independent. Our revenues - and our strength - come from more than 1,000 companies, organisations, institutions and individual practitioners, working in every part of the creative industries - commercial and publicly-supported - as well as in the education system that supports them all. We work with our members in towns, cities and the rural economy, nationwide.

We work with politicians of all parties and across all of government and with every level of government - from eight Whitehall departments including No 10 and the Treasury, the devolved nations, metro mayors, city leaders, LEPs and local authorities.

The challenges posed by Brexit and the opportunities presented by the industrial strategy have made it more important than ever that we articulate the value of our sector - intrinsic, economic, societal and in terms of soft power. If ever there was a need for the Federation, it is now.


FreeMoveCreate

Fashion is about fluidity of travel and thought, for both our talents and for our products.

A garment can go through multiple supply chain countries from design to sale; a stylist and photographer will travel regularly to shoot editorials or campaigns. We have to travel this much, as our business is global and interconnected.

Any slowing down on travel to brands or to talent, will mean in a reduction to the UK fashion reputation and presence on the global stage. Brands will consider relocation, talent will go where the brands are to shoot. This will impact upon our tax, meaning a £28bn UK industry will start to unravel. Fashion and the arts are intrinsic to the cultural value of the UK: we make it a great place to live, surrounded by the best talents in the world.

But it isn't just the Front Row or the superstar designers and models, we have an industry where many are living on freelance average wages and have to travel to make ends meet, while they build up their business. Any delays to travel or difficulties in doing so, will impact on those who might then decide the golden passport offers being made elsewhere in Europe look like a very exciting and viable offer. Fashion Roundtable support #freemovecreate as we are keen to see solutions around domicile support for talent back into the Brexit conversation: the creation of hyper local talent hubs for fashion and the arts in all cities and a creative policy to support all levels of the fashion industry and creative sector with on-going freedom of movement once the UK leaves the EU.
