British Fashion Council have announced that the BFC Foundation Fashion Fund for the Covid Crisis has been reopened for a second round…
Following the initial £1,000,000 made available for the BFC Foundation Fashion Fund, the organisation has raised an additional £500,000, allowing applications to reopen for a second round.
Established in March, the fund was set up to support creative fashion businesses and individuals to survive the Covid-19 crisis. The BFC gave financial support and mentoring to 37 British designer businesses, in the first round in May 2020, with grants taken from the £1,000,000 emergency fund. These were allocated to viable businesses depending on their urgency and capability to come through and thrive post crisis.
A portion of the funds were also allocated to students, underpinning the future generation of creative talent.
The BFC continues to fundraise and will reopen applications every time the £500,000 milestone is reached.
