London Fashion Week 2017
The fashion industry is more valuable to the economy than you might think
The programme has been broadcasting from London Fashion Week to take an in-depth look at one of Britain's big success stories - the fashion industry.
The industry is more valuable to the economy than you might think: fashion employs close to a million people and accounts for around 1.5% of GDP, which is more than legal services - or broadcasting.
In a wide-ranging podcast, we hear from such figures in fashion as designer Patrick Grant, trend forecaster Carla Buzasi, Erdem's Erdem Moralioglu, Topshop's Sheena Sauvaire, the V&A's Sonnet Stanfill, Burberry's Christopher Bailey and the Financial Times' Jo Ellison.
They examine the importance of the industry at a pivotal time for the UK as it prepares to leave the European Union.
