The fashion industry is one of Britain's most significant industries. Focused around designer fashion, but spanning across textiles, media, retail, and leisure, it contributes billions to the UK economy and is responsible for 797,000 jobs. Fashion's total contribution via both indirect.
With these significant statistics, why is there a disproportionate amount of these statistics in the U.K of workers who are BME, only working in retail? We acknowledge a vast amount of BME talent within a variety of roles in fashion across Britain. Although so much more needs to be done. As an organisation 85% of our service users are BME as well as our senior management and board members. We are proud to be a BME lead organisation serving a vibrant sector in Britain.
