The final list will encompass 100 names and will include some of fashion’s most exciting and forward-thinking young professionals.

The Fashion Awards in partnership with Swarovski is a fundraiser for the British Fashion Council, a not-for-profit organization focused on promoting excellence in British fashion and supporting the future pipeline of creative talent. The BFC’s work is achieved through a range of charitable initiatives and education, business and mentoring schemes that support talent from school level students to emerging designers and future fashion start-ups, through to established designer businesses.

In 2017, the BFC raised over £2.2million for its charities and business support initiatives and in the twelve months to March 2018 has allocated £1.1million to further support these efforts. As part of its Education pillar, the BFC’s initiatives are designed to secure the legacy of support for talented students at every stage, safeguarding the opportunity to further education regardless of financial situation.
