Fashion is a means of self-expression that allows people to try on many roles in life. Whether you prefer high street-sleek or Chanel-chic, fashion accommodates the chameleon in all of us. It’s a way of celebrating the diversity and variety of the world in which we live. The industry has a global appeal - according to the British Fashion Council in 2018 it contributed £32 billion to the economy and supported almost 900,000 UK jobs.
