The British Fashion Council announces the findings from a survey of UK designer businesses which asked their preference to Remain In or Leave the EU. Almost 500 designers opened the e-survey with 290 responding. A clear message came through with 90% stating their preference to Remain, 4.3% voted to Leave, 2.4% were Undecided and 2.8% stated that they would Not Vote.
This weekend Friday 10th – Monday 13th June 2016 saw several designers at London Collections Men state their preference to Remain In the EU. Designers including Christopher Raeburn, Daniel W Fletcher, E.Tautz, Lou Dalton and Sibling all showed their support for the Remain In campaign.
These results also echo the response from the Creative Industries Federation Survey, which showed more than 96% support for Remain among members, with barely 4% in favour of Leave*.
