The Fashion Trust is a BFC charitable initiative founded in February 2011 to offer selected designers business support through mentoring and financial awards to promote the art and business of fashion. This philanthropic programme has been created and developed in partnership with its co-chairs Tania Fares and Kim Hersov, and the Fashion Trust Committee.

Tania Fares and Kim Hersov, said: “Once again we are delighted to support these talented designers for the year ahead. British fashion is globally recognised for its energy and originality which is why supporting the industry at grass roots is as vital as ever. These designers represent the future of the British fashion industry and we hope the Fashion Trust will further advance their position as global brands of the future.”

Caroline Rush CBE, CEO British Fashion Council, commented: “We are thrilled to be able to support these twelve designers through the BFC Fashion Trust this year. The generous support of the BFC Fashion Trust members and Farfetch continues to help in the development of these brands and we are extremely excited to see how this initiative further enables their creativity and growth”

Previous recipients of the Fashion Trust have used funds to develop stores, website/e-commerce and also in the production of pre-collections.
