BFC rallies fashion firms to donate fabrics

Published: 2021-04-09

LONDON – The British Fashion Council (BFC) has teamed up with more than 20 brands, including Burberry, Victoria Beckham, River Island and Barbour, to donate waste materials to colleges across the UK.

The Student Fabric Initiative aims to provide fashion students with high-quality materials that can be reused through their studies.  

“One of the British Fashion Council‘s priorities is to encourage the industry to move towards a circular fashion economy while supporting excellence in fashion design,” said chief executive, Caroline Rush. “Being able to help students in need while managing to offset waste is an important example of the power of industry-wide collaboration.”
