As part of the BFC’s three year strategy to support growth in the sector, it is developing and broadening its designer business support.

The BFC have recognised that with growing international demand, existing and new schemes need to focus further on the designers at this crucial stage of their business development.

NEWGEN will remain the BFC’s landmark scheme to support the very best emerging talents whose ambition is to build global, high end fashion brands for the future.

NEWGEN designers are identified by their creativity, strong design aesthetic and point of difference. This season the NEWGEN committee, chaired by Sarah Mower, focused on selecting designers that are ready for the profile, platform and support that NEWGEN offers.

The committee will form mentoring support groups for NEWGEN designers, the British Fashion Council will deliver a series of focused seminars and 1:1 workshops, and TOPSHOP, the long-term partner of NEWGEN has committed access to their team’s vast knowledge on all aspects of the business, to assist the designers as they build their own infrastructure and skills.
