The British Fashion Council (BFC) is delighted to announce that in 2017, it raised over £2.2million for its charities and business support initiatives and in the twelve months to March 2018 it has allocated £1.1million. With the British fashion industry contributing £29.7billion to the UK GDP, the BFC is committed to developing design excellence and growth by nurturing, supporting and promoting British fashion talent on the global stage.
As an organisation, education underpins the BFC’s work on promoting excellence in British fashion, by supporting the future talent pipeline, from school level to emerging talent, and future fashion start-ups through to new establishment and global brands, through a range of charitable initiatives. Today the BFC hosted an event at The May Fair Hotel to highlight and celebrate the 2018 designers awarded prizes and financial contributions including the announcement of the 2018/19 NEWGEN line-up and the 2018 BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund winner.
