17 China ***New***

China

China is having a huge impact on every area of UK fashion. With a burgeoning economy, its expanding middle classes have become a major force in retail, and huge numbers of Chinese tourists are flocking to the UK to snap up luxury and heritage brands. With the UK economy stagnant, British businesses are also sizing up China for expansion. Within the country itself, consumption of fashion is putting pressure on domestic supplies, and many Chinese manufacturers are dropping European orders to concentrate on domestic ones, consequently pushing up prices in the UK.
