The United Kingdom will hold a referendum on June 23, 2016 to decide whether or not to remain a member of the European Union (EU), an economic and political partnership involving 28 European countries which allows members to trade together in a single market and free movement across its borders for citizens.

The British Fashion Council (BFC) has announced findings from its survey of UK designer businesses, which asked whether they wished to leave or remain in the EU.

290 designers responded to the survey, with 90 per cent stating their preference to remain, 4.3 per cent voting to leave, 2.4 per cent undecided and 2.8 per cent stating that they would not vote.

Designers including Christopher Raeburn, Daniel W Fletcher, E.Tautz, Lou Dalton and Sibling have expressed support for the ‘Remain’ campaign.


The results echo the response from the Creative Industries Federation Survey, which showed 96 per cent of members showing support to remain in the EU, with barely 4% in favour of leave.
