Demand for UK fashion designers have surged in the past six months with online searches seeing a 125% increase.
Latest figures by gig economy platform Fiverr, reveal searches for clothing design have also risen 116%.
This report comes at a time when side hustles are surging in Britain, with one in three Brits out of work or on furlough setting up side hustles for extra income.
Peggy de Lange, vice-president of international expansion at Fiverr said: “This data is not surprising given how the fashion industry has transformed during COVID-19. In-person retail experiences are less desirable to the average consumer when it’s so easy to shop online safely. This shift has been advantageous to small independent fashion brands who are under less pressure to be sold by retailers, or wedded to fashion calendars.”
