Britain aims to break £3bn fashion export mark

01 Mar
Over £3 billion worth of fashion and retail exports will come from Britain this year if it manages to surpass the total reached in 2009.

According to UK Fashion and Textile Association deputy director Paul Alger, currency fluctuations mean home-grown goods are particularly tempting for buyers in the eurozone.

He commented as the organisation headed to Paris for the last date on this season's fashion calendar.

While international purchasers hit the whole circuit and visit New York, Milan and London, it is in France that the highest proportion of British goods is sold.

"So, it is not surprising that the contingent we are taking to France is as large as ever even in these difficult trading times," Mr Alger added.

It was recently revealed that the autumn/winter 2010/2011 collection of Alexander McQueen is to be shown in Paris next week, despite his untimely death last month.

Entry to the event is believed to be via invitation only.
