British Fashion Council Aims to Raise £50 Million For Struggling Designers
As the BFC announces its first 37 Foundation Fashion Fund recipients, the organisation wants British government and larger industry players to step up to support their smaller counterparts amid the Covid-19 crisis.
BoF meets four designers from Raisefashion’s brand fellowship programme without formal fashion training, to learn the challenges they have faced in starting a brand and how the non-profit is supporting their venture.
Four designers from Raisefashion’s brand fellowship programme share how the non-profit has enabled the creatives to take their business from strength to strength, and better navigate on-going market challenges today.
Executive director and founding board member, Felita Harris discusses the non-profit’s brand fellowship programme — an 8-week masterclass for 8 BIPOC designers, conducted by experienced industry advisors and senior executives.
