London Fashion Week

Prime Minister Theresa May and Chairman of the British Fashion Council Dame Natalie Massenet welcomed representatives from across the British fashion industry to a reception at 10 Downing Street last night. Ahead of London Fashion Week, Theresa May emphasised the importance of the UK’s fashion industry, one of the country’s greatest success stories which contributes £28 billion to Britain’s economy and supports nearly 900,000 jobs. London Fashion Week is a global showcase which welcomes guests from over 58 countries, promotes designer brands to an international audience of trade and consumers and generates orders of over £100 million each season.

The Prime Minister welcomed apprentices from some of Britain’s leading fashion businesses including Charlotte Olympia, John Smedley, Private White VC and RA Smart Holdings, as well as British Fashion Council scholarship recipients and graduate traineeships from the Royal College of Art and Central St Martins. The Prime Minister said she was delighted to meet some of Britain’s up and coming talent and talked about the Government‘s commitment to support apprentices – in the fashion industry and beyond – to go as far as their talents can take them, whatever their background. Other guests included heads of industry, CEOs, creative directors, entrepreneurs and representatives from global retailers, media, and designer fashion brands.

Prime Minister Theresa May said: “I am proud to say that our British fashion industry is a global leader in trade, creativity and innovation. The value of UK fashion exports was £5.8bn in 2015 with British brands such as Burberry, Alexander McQueen and Sophia Webster in demand by international markets including the USA, Japan, France and Italy. Dame Natalie Massenet said, “London is unique. It is a great place to live and work. It is a dynamic fashion, business, creative and cultural capital and we have no doubt we will show it at its best over the next few days”
