Including Craig Green, Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY, Liam Hodges, Richard Quinn and more.
The British Fashion Council has just announced the recipients of its BFC Foundation Fashion Fund, which centres around a £1,000,000 GBP ($1,227,000 USD) pot of money that is set out to support designers and businesses that have been directly impacted by coronavirus.
The large sum of money has seen donations from Browns, Burberry and Paul Smith, and will aid a total of 37 British labels in surviving in the current climate. In addition, part of the fund will also be allocated to students, continuing the BFC’s commitment to supporting upcoming British designers and creatives.
“Over the last couple of weeks, we have seen an astonishing amount of applications come through from British designer businesses all over the country, asking for help to survive the crisis. The need for support is immense. Our hope is to re-open the fund for future rounds, to help as many businesses as possible, and ensure the future growth and success of the British fashion industry,” said Caroline Rush, Chief Executive of the BFC, in a press release.
The 37 British designers that have received funding include Craig Green, Aries, Paria Farzaneh, Richard Quinn, Liam Hodges, Bethany Williams and more. Those that applied and did not receive funding will be informed about new rounds of funding as well as upcoming government support schemes, to collectively provide aid for businesses throughout the pandemic.
