Let’s make it here

Loved the piece in the Telegraph on Eric Musgrave’s Let’s Make It Here initiative. Musgrave, director general of the UK Fashion & Textile Association, set up the service to matchmake designers, fashion buyers and sourcing managers with Britain manufacturers. ‘It is very important that people realise that hundreds of companies do still make fabrics, components and clothing in the UK – not everything is made in China,’ says Musgrave. ‘The UK is one of the best sources of fine clothing in the world. Its inherent quality equates to good value – a fact that is often better appreciated abroad, where the Made in UK label is a status symbol.’
