Fashion Industry Trade Associations in United Kingdom

UK or British fashion industry is famous for two main factors; first a comprehensively unique integration, rarely visible in other countries, between the British fashion manufacturers and British fashion retailers itself and second, a massive invasion by 'Asian fashion culture,' thanks to the imports from China and India. The inflow of low cost fashion apparel has made fashion trends in UK, especially the fashion trends in London, as an affordable option. Thus no surprises, if the average household expenditure on British dresses and British costumes is as low as 6 percent only. However, these Asian dresses have hardly deteriorated the native spirit of England Fashion. Thanks to the innovations of British fashion designers and UK fashion trade associations, those alien fabrics and textures have got an inspiring British undertone.
