How can the fashion industry prepare for Brexit?
In this episode I catch up with Adam Mansell, CEO of the UK Fashion and Textile Association (UKFT)
UKFT is a membership network for fashion and textile companies and Adam is a keen supporter of UK manufacturing.
In this interview Adam talks about how Brexit is affecting the fashion industry, and also talks about some of the work the UKFT is doing to create apprenticeships for the UK textile industry.
If you are a brand manufacturing in the UK he explains what you should be doing now to prepare yourself for exporting post-Brexit in a stress-free way.
Adam often represents the textile industry in discussions with Parliament and has some interesting things to say about the knowledge that UK Government has about supply chains.
He also talks about some of his factory visits with the UKFT’s president – Princess Anne.
