The essential link between fashion,
politics, business and the consumer.
Our survey on Ethnic Representation in the Fashion Industry, in line with our April and June events with speakers including Kenya Hunt from ELLE UK, this survey creates evidence for a more comprehensive understanding of diversity in the industry: which NESTA and DCMS currently place at 9% in the designer fashion sector.
Anna Fitzpatrick is the Sustainability Expert at Fashion Roundtable; who was the secretariat for for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Sustainable Fashion and works at the Centre for Sustainable Fashion, has created our Sustainability and Geopolitics Survey.
Both surveys takes 5 - 10 mins and as with all our surveys, are the backbone data for our research and papers, such as the one we have just released on The Implications of Brexit On The Fashion Industry.
