Welcome to the Fashion Association of Britain
FAB is a division of bira, with a rich heritage dating back through the British Shops and Stores Association, the Menswear Association of Britain (MAB), right back to the Drapers Chamber of Trade of Great Britain and Ireland (DCT) as it was first known.
The DCT was founded in 1899 to protect and promote the interests of retail drapers and allied traders. Our heritage gives us the gravitas we need to protect the interests of our members at all levels, but just as you’d expect we have to stay ahead as an organisation and are always looking for the next trend.
Not only do we provide you with a wealth of industry specific expertise through our active retailer committee, you’ll also enjoy a host of commercial benefits.
You’ll also get access to a support network of like-minded fashion retailers, facing the same challenges as you. Together we can shape the future of British fashion on the high street.Join FAB
