The UK has a reputation as an influential hotbed for new, young multicultural talent producing Fashion greats like Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Gareth Pugh, JW Anderson and new names like Richard Malone and Wales Bonner. British fashion has compassion and protest in its veins.
While global fashion brands and retailers dominate fashion culture, increasingly, small and niche spaces and fashion subcultures are developing for consumers that also encompass a sense of belonging and identification with neighbourhoods and their enervating and diverse cultural accompaniments. These characteristics include small scale retail precincts, food cultures, entertainment options, mixed populations of residents and visitors and users, as well as a strong assertion of identity and precincts for innovation & technology, experimentation, co-design, spatial use and alternative forms of display, retailing, and consumption as well as close community engagement.
