The British Fashion Council (BFC) and Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) have released a joint statement calling for the alignment of the fashion industry amid the Coronavirus pandemic. From the onset of the crisis the CFDA and BFC have been in close communication, sharing feedback from members and stakeholders.
Both organisations are now taking the opportunity to "rethink and reset the way in which we all work and show our collections."
The BFC and CFDA said common perspectives of their members and the organisations include:
BFC and CFDA added in the statement: "The need to align as a global industry during these times has become more apparent. We will continue to work side-by-side, while each city will develop its own local initiatives. Fashion is a business of creativity and new ideas and difficult times are also ones for innovation. We will work to our industry’s benefit as we reimagine and create, with our members and partners, a successful future."
