A supportive community for fashion and textile entrepreneurs


UKFT Rise is a network designed to help those in the early stages of building a fashion or textile business.


UKFT Rise hosts regular social events in London to allow individuals to network with peers and share experiences. Read more about our recent events below or search ‘UKFT Rise’ on Eventbrite to find details of the next event.


The fashion and textile industry is notoriously exclusive and fragmented. While running a start-up can be hugely rewarding, it can also be challenging and lonely.

UKFT Rise exists to help entrepreneurs build a network, share best practices and avoid potential pitfalls, forge relationships with other like-minded companies and even meet potential customers or partners.

UKFT Rise provides the inspiration and community to help new businesses flourish.
