BFC unveils list of most creative new wave of talent
The British Fashion Council (BFC) has unveiled its 2019 New Wave: Creatives - a list of 100 most innovative young creative talents from around the world. It includes trailblazers from multiple disciplines from artists, activists, casting agents, commentators, florists, hair & makeup artists, image makers, nail artists, set designers, stylists and writers.

The New Wave: Creatives will be celebrated at The Fashion Awards 2019 on December 2 at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

The list available on BFC's website, is a resource for the global fashion industry and highlights London’s position as an international hub of creativity and pays homage to the incredible success of both home-grown and international talent, while celebrating those who play a vital role in the industry’s cultural reputation. The list of 100 names includes talent from over 20 countries around the globe.

The category was introduced at The Fashion Awards in 2018. This year the British Fashion Council asked the voting panel of 2,500 fashion industry insiders from across the global fashion industry to nominate those they believed to be the best young creative talent in today. The criterion was to vote for the most creative new wave of talent across creative disciplines in fashion not including designers and models. 

The Fashion Awards is the main fundraiser for the British Fashion Council, a not for profit organisation focused on promoting excellence in British fashion and supporting the future pipeline of creative talent.

The British Fashion Council’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. In 2018, the BFC raised over £2.3 million for its charities and business support initiatives out of which £1.1 million will be allocated directly to scholars and designer businesses.
