The British Fashion Council will host a debate at the Meet the Manufacturer sourcing event in May, to discuss sustainability in the UK fashion industry.
The debate and networking event will introduce British designers to potential manufacturing partners in the UK.
BFC chief executive Caroline Rush said: “Many of our British designers are already manufacturing product here in the UK, however, we are frequently asked to make introductions and provide more information on the right production partners.
“We hope that partnering with Make it British will encourage a better network and opportunities for designers and British manufacturers to work together.”
Kate Hills, chief executive and founder of Make it British, which organises Meet the Manufacturer, added: “We have a wealth of high-end manufacturers in the UK who provide a valuable service to British designers who rely on the skills, flexibility and location of these suppliers when developing their collections for London Fashion Week.”
Meet the Manufacturer will take place on May 25 and 26 at The Old Truman Brewery in east London.
