British Fashion Council and Harper’s Bazaar announce the launch of a new initiative

The British Fashion Council (BFC) and Harper’s Bazaar today announce the launch of the ‘BFC / Bazaar Fashion Arts Foundation’, at Shoreditch House, a new initiative that aims to inspire and support collaboration between fashion and the arts. The Fashion Arts Foundation aims to nurture collaborations and foster relationships between fashion, film, music and art talent. Through this strategy the BFC aims to highlight London’s position as a leading creative capital and re-affirm our fashion industry’s reputation for innovation. The Foundation has already announced a partnership with BAFTA which will see a series of events to bring together fashion and film talent. The initiative will also see the appointment of Alison Edmonds as the Foundation’s British ambassador in Los Angeles, to further cement our international presence.
