Brexit Influence in the Fashion Industry
Fashion trends have always followed world events, and the major news of the Brexit vote, or Britain's vote under exit from the European Union, is no exception. With all the world looking to Britain, and a strong sense of political disarray, next winter (2017) should see a resurgence of punk, with some grunge like inspiration appearing in 2016 winter.

We could see some big changes in the fashion industry, and it may be the U.S.'s time to shine as our London favorites take a backseat.
