Mark Twain once wrote, “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.” Whether we’re one of the millions of people employed by the sector or just someone who likes to shop, we are all touched by the fashion industry. For me, fashion is not temporary like a flash in the pan. The real fashion is chic. It can last forever. For example, Chanel suit is suitable for people in all ages.
The fashion industry plays an important role in the world. According to the research by British fashion council, the UK fashion industry has directly contributed £20.9 billion to the UK economy and support 816,000 jobs.
The significant contributions are made by marketing (£241 million), fashion media (£205 million) and fashion education (£16 million). Given the importance of the fashion industry, it is important to consider these activities.
