Many businesses across the UK are going to be affected by Brexit, requiring them to adapt to new legislations and procedures. Not only is this time-consuming, but it can also be financially demanding, and even detrimental to some businesses. For the UK fashion industry, Brexit was not welcome, with figures stating that 90% of designers telling the British Fashion Council that they were going to vote to remain in the EU. The UK imports almost £10 billion worth of clothes and footwear from the EU each year, and there are over 10,000 European staff members working in the British fashion industry.
