For the last 20 years China has become the forefront of the global consumer market with an increasing demand for luxury Western goods and an emerging middle class numbering in the hundreds of millions. Whilst Luxury brands and retailers have been present in China for a number of years the emerging middle class’s desire for less well known Western products, both high street fashion and heritage items, has opened the door for many brands. In particular the Chinese population’s desire for British products has led to huge growth in UK Chinese exports.
