Deal or No Deal

I’m not referring to Noel Edmonds’ cult TV series, though there are some surprising parallels between the show’s concept and what’s currently going on in UK politics. Twice the House of Parliament has said ‘No Deal’ to Theresa May’s ‘Deal’ and, at the time of writing, we’re currently hurtling towards that final unopened box where – ultimately – No Deal is a very real prospect.

Despite Government adverts imploring SMEs to prepare for Brexit, how can we when there are still many possible outcomes? Indeed, the political landscape is changing so quickly that it’s almost impossible to keep up. There were almost six million signatures to revoke Article 50 before it was debated in Parliament, Theresa May reportedly only has a few more days left as Prime Minister and there are suggestions that another General Election could be just around the corner. Of course, by the time the magazine goes to print, the situation will have changed yet again.

However, speaking to manufacturers and designers, it’s clear that until this drawn-out saga reaches its conclusion, it’s business as usual.  In this issue, we focus on bridesmaid dresses and jewellery, international designers and offer you previews of Harrogate Fashion Week and Interbride.
