The British Fashion Council plans to provide 1.7 million pounds to London-based fashion designers. The non-profit organization had to take such a step in order to help the young talents to reset post-pandemic.
The 34 designers who will benefit from the program include BFC / Vogue Designer Fashion Fund 2021 winner Bethany Williams, 2019 H&M Design Awards winner Priya Ahluwalia, Queen Elizabeth II's favorite designer Richard Quinn, as well as Halpern, Completedworks and many others.
“Now, more than ever, it is important to champion talent and to support our emerging and young businesses that lead the way in environmental and community impact. Through the BFC Foundation, our aim is to improve equality, equity, and opportunity so that the fashion industry remains open to all,” said BFC chief executive officer Caroline Rush, who has repeatedly called on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to support the fashion industry, one of the most affected by the COVID outbreak. nineteen
