NEWS With a £500,000 milestone reached, the British Fashion Council invites new applications to its Fashion Fund, to help businesses navigate the COVID-19 crisis
Filed by Lucire staff/July 29, 2020/9.14


The British Fashion Council has raised £500,000 for its BFC Foundation Fashion Fund, and is now receiving applications for a second round to help businesses through the COVID-19 crisis.
   The Council had already distributed the first £1,000,000 of grants from its emergency fund in May to 37 designers. It was always intended that once another £500,000 was raised, it would open a second round. It will open additional rounds as each £500,000 milestone is reached.
   Alexander McQueen, Amazon Fashion, Browns, Cadogan, Clearpay, the Coach Foundation and John Lewis & Partners have donated to the fund. Profits from the BFC’s Great British Designers Face Coverings in association with Bags of Ethics, retailed through ASOS, Boots, John Lewis & Partners, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose, also contributed to the £500,000.
   The fund comprised support grants from the BFC–Vogue Designer Fashion Fund, BFC–GQ Designer Menswear Fund supported by JD.com, BFC Fashion Trust and BFC Newgen. Arch & Hook, BFC Fashion Trust supporters, British GQ, British Vogue, Browns, Burberry, Depop, European Regional Development Fund, HSBC, JD.com, Label/Mix, Mayor of London, Paul Smith, Revlon Professional, Rodial and the Bicester Village Shopping Collection have been contributors to the BFC Foundation Fashion Fund.
   Applications are open at www.britishfashioncouncil.co.uk/About/COVID-19-Updates/BFC-Foundation-Fashion-Fund-for-the-Covid-Crisis, with a deadline of August 7.
