Industry Leadership Group

The ILG reflects the size and diversity of the fashion and textile industry in Scotland. It exists to create a broad strategy for the industry in Scotland and acts as an interface between the industry and government. 

The first meeting of the new group was held in Glasgow in November 2019. At the meeting, Simon Cotton, CEO of Johnstons of Elgin, was elected as chair of the group.

The ILG agreed to focus on developing an export strategy and a skills strategy that focuses on all aspects of the industry from manufacturing to design to the provision of education and training.
