The BFC Membership Programme has been created in support of the BFC’s mission to encourage collaboration and inclusivity, inviting designers to come together in support of the fashion eco-system, with access to a range of benefits and the opportunity to contribute. The community of 80 founding members, comprised of British designers at varying stages of their career, were called upon to vote for this peer to peer award. The winner will be announced at a ceremony on December 2, 2019 in fashion’s creative capital, London, at the iconic Royal Albert Hall.

Established in 2019, the BFC Foundation was created for charitable purposes and grant-giving, its work is achieved through a range of charitable initiatives that focus on education, business and mentoring schemes supporting talent from school level and emerging designers to fashion start-ups and established brands.
