British fashion companies hoping to gain a foothold in the Japanese market that can apply to join UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) on their market visit to Japan and explore the opportunities available for British companies.

The Japanese fashion market including jewellery and accessories is worth JPY 1,800 billion in 2013 and is ranked 3rd in the world.

Japan boasts over 230 department stores, 500 fashion boutique chains and many independent stores country-wide and there is undoubtedly a thirst for British goods and products.

UKTI will support emerging brands to showcase their products to major buyers and potential partners, and unlock substantial business prospects.

Whilst on many occasions a first market visit to a foreign country may not result in direct sales and orders, brands often get the chance to meet retailers face to face, including potential distribution partners.
