LONDON — It’s rare that a G-8 leader happily takes to the microphone to talk about fashion — including the Marks & Spencer underpants he’s wearing — but earlier this week, Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron did just that — and no one took the gesture more seriously than the British Fashion Council.
“Fashion is not just some sort of accessory, you’re not an add-on,” he told industry figures including Tom Ford, Tommy Hilfiger, Richard James, Jonathan Saunders and Patrick Grant during a reception at Number 10 Downing Street. An ultraenthusiastic Cameron told his audience that he wants to see more high-end goods manufactured in Britain as part of an overall strategy to “reindustrialize” the country. “You have my 100 percent support, so just go for it.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
