The BFC’s work is achieved through a range of charitable initiatives which focus on education, business and mentoring schemes that support talent from school level and emerging designers to fashion start-ups and established brands.

The Fashion Awards act as a fundraiser to the British Fashion Council’s talent initiatives and programmes which promote excellence in design by financially supporting students with the ability and potential to make an exceptional contribution to the fashion industry.
