BA And MA Scholarship Recipients Are Announced By BFC Foundation

There’s a lot of emerging talent to be recognized.


Every year, the British Fashion Council rewards a handful of talented creatives with scholarships to help fund their educational endeavors. To qualify for such a reward, these recipients must attend a college that one of the panelists had also attended and have a compelling and thoughtful portfolio of work that shows a clear viewpoint of where they want to go in the future of fashion. For as long as the scholarship program has gone on, the council has witnessed past, and present recipients go on to do amazing things in the industry.

“If the fashion industry is to survive and not just repeat itself, the new generations of design students are the lifeblood and the hope. All the candidates that came before the judging panel were compelling, intensely thoughtful with brilliant research and a thorough embrace of community, sustainability, social concern woven into collections of mind-altering newness,” said panelist and Creative Consultant & Writer Amanda Harlech in a press release.
