The Future of Fashion Debate in The House of Lords
Lord Laird organised a debate in the House of Lords with Harold Tillman of BFC, Amanda Rudin of Fashion TV any many other people from fashion industry and related industries. The discussion was very fruitful and touched on many subjects which affect success of the UK fashion industry. Subjects included manufacturing, opportunities for young designers, relationship with buyers etc. However, the main aim of this debate was to find out how to get the fashion industry to earn even more money for the british economy and how to build a relationship with british government so they could create laws supporting UK fashion industry.
I have, of course, put through my comments about how clothing affects human psychology, how it can make you more confident and in turn more productive. I have also touched on the subject of teenagers and young people in their early twenties and how provocative clothes negatively influence their self-esteem and confidence. I was glad to hear a lot of positive comments after the debate stating how important was this connection between style, fashion and psychology.
The debate was so good that it could have lasted for days. All in all everyone got really inspired to truly create a change in the UK fashion industry and boost its rankings in government and among average consumers. Efforts has been made to create a force of professionals from fashion industry to meet on a regular basis and help to facilitate this change, all under the roof of Lord Laird’s office. I have, of course, volunteered to take part in this force so I will update you on the progress.
Thoughts, comments and suggestions are very welcome.
