Brexit, slowdown in UK high street sales affect sourcing
The impact of Brexit, the change in consumer demand for clothing and the slowdown in high street sales in the United Kingdom are among the factors that are affecting sourcing of both textiles and garments there, according to Linda Laderman, co-founder and organiser of Textile Forum, London's premiere sourcing event for luxury fashion fabrics.

The event, which attracts fabric buyers from major fashion retailers and brands, established independent design businesses and start-ups, tailors, craft shops, seamstresses and costumiers, has witnessed an increase in exhibitors from Italy, Spain and India in recent times, Laderman told Fibre2Fashion in an interview.
