The ReBurberry x BFC Fabric Program Is Back, Here's What It Means

Supporting the next generation of designers.

Continuing its legacy of supporting creative communities, Burberry is once again extending its ReBurberry Fabric program, in partnership with the British Fashion Council.

First launched in 2020, the program aims to donate leftover fabrics to fashion students, helping to promote a circular economy and upcycle surplus fabric. Now the programme returns for its second phase, resulting in a total of over 12,000 metres of fabric donated to over 30 fashion schools and universities in the U.K.

“One of the BFC’s priorities is to encourage the industry to move towards a circular fashion economy while supporting excellence in fashion design,” says Chief Executive of the BFC, Caroline Rush in a press release. “We are delighted to work with Burberry, helping ensure students across the country have access to the best quality fabrics. Creative talent is at the heart of the industry and we are proud of our world-leading colleges – being able to provide these students with such opportunities is a privilege,” she adds.

Overall, the partnership hopes to encourage the next generation of designers to think more creatively and sustainably about material sourcing and product waste, offering access to high-quality materials that they wouldn’t otherwise have.

“As new designers, we want to be working with as many different types of fabrics as possible in our experiments and in the trialling stages. Along with being very wasteful, this process can be really limited and hard to do when keeping to a budget,” explains 1st-year B.A. (Hons) Fashion Design with Business Studies student Georgia Bate.
