BFC Reports: UK Fashion Brings In £28 Billion

by Ben Mulvey June 14, 2016

Whether it be through manufacturers, high-street shops or providers of wholesale ladies fashion, UK fashion is one of the main earners for the country’s economy, according to a recent report from the British Fashion Council. The document showed the British Fashion Industry to contribute in excess of £28bn per year towards the country’s economy, or roughly £9m an hour!

This report showed encouraging growth across all the different sectors within the British fashion industry, with wholesale ladies fashion UK based manufacturers and high-street retailers all set to benefit from the boost. Perhaps surprisingly, the main grower was menswear, with a 4.1% growth when compared to 2014, but the ladies were not too far behind, showing a growth of 3.7%. The report also showed that the industry currently employs almost 900.000 people, having generated around 90.000 new roles since 2014.

As providers of wholesale ladies fashion UK wide, we could not be more excited about these figures. We always knew the fashion industry was big, but to see how much it actually generates and contributes to make Britain’s economy thrive has left us feeling proud and honoured to be part of this thriving and successful sector! Wholesale is at the heart of the clothing industry, as it provides the ‘bridge’ between manufacturers and retailers, and is often responsible for clothes getting to shops in the first place. As such, we cannot help but feel as though we have contributed, however modestly, to the success the industry has experienced over the past year.

The figures also provide some food for thought, particularly the fact that menswear has surpassed women’s in terms of growth. This really shows that stereotypes of fashion and clothes-shopping being ‘just for women’ are definitely a thing of the past, and that modern men are just as concerned with looking stylish as their female counterparts. So when it comes to stocking up your store, why not come to us here at One 2 Wear, nothing beats our collection of wholesale ladies fashion UK wide, and furthermore, we stock some excellent men’s clothing too!
