What are those elements, which is making UK an eminent fashion industry?

The combination of the new emerging talent showcased alongside iconic heritage brands, makes British fashion the most exciting and unique fashion scene internationally. Because of the incredible design schools in London, which are known to be the best in the world, London is where careers are launched and stars are born. Through the BFC’s initiative schemes such as NEWGEN sponsored by Topshop, Fashion Forward sponsored by eBay and BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund, emerging designers have a platform and support with which to showcase their talent.

How do you see the future of fashion in the UK and globally?

BFC has launched the ‘Future of Fashion – Strategic Considerations for Growth’ report in February 2012. The considerations in this report offer inspiration and hope for the future of this great industry and for the economy of UK. Moreover, Uk’s fashion industry is worth £21billion to its economy as well as makes an imperative contribution to the international status. Besides, much more can be done to steer this fragment.

BFC has announced the nominees for the British Fashion Awards. Please explain more about these awards?

British Fashion Awards celebrates the breadth and depth of talent in the British fashion industry. We aim to acknowledge and award emerging stars, established designer brands, models, style icons for their creativity who contribute to the international fashion scene. The winners will be announced at this year’s award ceremony which will take place on Tuesday, November 27.

What are those parameters for the designers to participate in London Fashion Week?

For designers to showcase their collections at LFW they need to be vetted by an advisory committee of media, buyers and industry professionals.
