to support designers. John Lewis and Selfridges have signed up for the campaign but so far, no other retailers have come forward to show their support.


Dids explains, “We have 800


signatures in support of the Campaign, reinforced by our robust submission to the Government Consultation to get more on board. We also want to see independents, who support original design and whose lifeblood depends on it, join forces and join us as retail supporters.


Regarding the 800 or so signatories to our campaign, designers are looking at positive engagement with retail buyers and respect for original design. After all, we are ranked 4th in the world globally and UK design produces GDP of £33 billion. UK High Street retailers have a lot to thank British designers for – our designers have the vision to push boundaries and change things for the better. That is their strength and the unique selling point for retail!”
