London. September 13th. INTERFAX – The organizers of London Fashion Week have warned of possible negative consequences if the UK leaves the EU without an agreement, the Associated Press reported on Friday.
During the opening ceremony of London Fashion Week, the chairman of the British Fashion Council, a non-profit organization of British designers, Stephanie Fair, called on the government to find an opportunity to conclude an agreement with the EU, and not to leave the EU without any agreements.
According to her, studies show that disordered Brexit – without a deal with Brussels – hi to the fact that the fashion industry will lose $ 1 billion. Fair pointed to the need for an agreement that would ensure a "healthy and gradual growth of the fashion industry."
London Fashion Week runs from September 13-17. It is attended by such global fashion brands as Burberry and Christopher Kane.
Earlier this week, the British government partially published documents warning of the possible consequences of a country's exit from the EU without a deal. In particular, they talk about rising public unrest, "significant" increases in electricity prices, as well as problems with the supply of food and medicine.
Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain signed a law on September 9, which delays the country's exit from the EU if an agreement with Brussels is not signed by October 31, 2019.
According to the law, Johnson must ask the EU to postpone Brexit's deadline to January 31, 2020. The purpose of this measure is to avoid a “hard” exit from the EU – without a bilateral agreement with Brussels.
