Emotions are running high today after a historic vote in the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.
A survey by the British Fashion Council showed overwhelmingly that designers in the U.K. wanted to remain in the EU, but the decisive vote Thursday means there are lots of changes on the way for fashion and the British people.
Industry insiders took to social media to share their thoughts on the results. Sarah Rutson at Net-A-Porter and Nicholas Kirkwood and Alexa Chung were among the first to send out their thoughts on the results.

In response to the @leave.eu campaign who have today tried to put a spin on quotes made 20 years ago about keeping or losing the pound, I have to say strongly my comments were not about this referendum and should not be misused in this way! I believe in my country, I believe in a future for my children where we are stronger together and I support the #remain campaign. @strongerineurope
