The British Fashion Council (BFC) announce that its charitable initiative BFC Fashion Trust has in 2018 awarded grants totalling £380,000 between eight designers. This year’s grant recipients have been chosen for their exceptional effort and development in the areas around e-commerce, sustainability, production and wholesale expansion. The Fashion Trust is a British Fashion Council charitable initiative founded in February 2011, offering selected British based designers mentoring and financial support to promote the art and business of fashion. The philanthropic programme is developed in partnership with Co-chairs Tania Fares and Sian Westerman, along with the BFC, and the Fashion Trust Advisory Committee. As part of the structured mentoring programme delivered by the BFC, the eight awarded designers will benefit from international expertise and mentoring from BFC Fashion Trust’s official partner HSBC, one of the world’s largest banking and financial services organisations..  BFC Fashion Trust Co-Chairs Tania Fares and Sian Westerman said: “Thanks to the generosity and commitment from the Fashion Trust’s patrons and partners, we can continue our support to UK’s rising design talent and help them develop their creative identity while turning their brands into global businesses. We believe it’s important that London stays the most creative place for fashion and the support we are able to offer from the Fashion Trust is a truly unique opportunity.”
