The British Fashion Council has announced the second round of recipients of the BFC Foundation Fashion Fund, supporting creative fashion businesses and individuals to help them survive the Covid-19 crisis.
Aries, Nabil Nayal, and Teija are the trio of newcomers who will have a share of the £380,000 that is available in grants from this year's BFC Fashion Trust, as well tapping into a major mentoring programme.
Edeline Lee, Georgia Hardinge, Isa Arfen, Sharon Wauchob and Teatum Jones are among the eleven designers receiving BFC Fashion Trust grants in 2017. The recipients will share a total grant of £450,000.
Founded by Bono and Ali Hewson in 2005, Edun has appointed Danielle Sherman as artistic director. Sherman is co-founder of the Row and previously worked for Alexander Wang. She replaces Sharon Wauchob.
