British Fashion Council signs up to UKFT

The British Fashion Council (BFC) has signed up to the UK Fashion and Textile Association (UKFT) as the association pushes on with plans to become the single voice of the fashion and textile industry.

The BFC has taken two seats on the board of association. The Savile Row Bespoke Association, the British Menswear Guild and the Association of Suppliers to the British Clothing Industry Association, have all become members of UKFT over the past six months.

UKFT chairman Peter Lucas said: “Having the BFC on board adds further depth on the design side. It enables us to work more closely on initiatives that will help designers be better placed to develop sales both in the UK and overseas and receive first-hand guidance on national and international issues that will affect them

BFC chairman Harold Tillman added:

“Joining UKFT will allow us to share our experiences, explore opportunities for designer businesses and discuss issues affecting British designer businesses with the broader fashion industry in the UK.” 

The UKFT is in talks with other organisations in the industry including a group of British textiles firms, the National Childrenswear Association and the Textile Institute with a view to signing them up to the association.
