Fashion news, insights, events and members club

The Industry is a leading fashion news, insights and events business. We also run the premier networking club for fashion professionals.

Our aim, through our expert content, events and our engaged network of members and social followers, is to connect industry professionals, share knowledge, support each other, and to further the interests of the industry.

Our events attract some of the industry’s leading names who are happy to share their expertise with our members. Recent speakers at our quarterly Keynote interview events include: GQ’s Dylan Jones, Asos founder Nick Robertson, model and entrepreneur David Gandy, designer Mary Katrantzou and writer and campaigner Caryn Franklin.

We also stage quarterly Masterclasses where business experts share insight, ideas and actionable advice to help our members be more successful.

We are an inclusive group and welcome members from all walks of the industry and we strive to deliver great value and support to all who join us.
