DIGNY TRUST: Three emerging fashion firms have won funding, and mentoring, from the charitable initiative of the British Fashion Council, BFC Fashion Trust. They will join a list of five designers who previously received the award and who continue to benefit from the initiative.
The latest additions to the list of trust are Aries, Nabil Nayal and Teija. Former recipients Marques’ Almeida, Madre de Perla, Palmer Harding, Rejina Pyo and Sharon Wauchob, will continue to receive mentoring and funding this year, according to BFC.
The trust said that in 2018 it has awarded subsidies totaling 380,000 pounds among the eight designers. BFC said the recipients were chosen “for their exceptional effort and development in the areas related to electronic commerce, sustainability, production and wholesale expansion.”
