The British Fashion Council (BFC) has launched the Student Fabric Initiative, a collective community action developed to support fashion students across the country in the face of the pandemic while reducing waste across the industry. 24 brands have joined together to donate materials, including deadstock and unwanted fabric, to fashion students at 33 colleges in need around the UK. Burberry supported the delivery of the material, and the initiative is supported by Charlie Porter, with additional help from MATCHESFASHION, Fora and Cozette McCreery.
Brands taking part in the Student Fabric Initiative include: ASICS, Barbour, Begg x Co, Bianca Saunders, Charlotte Knowles, Craig Green, David Koma, Gabriela Hearst, Halpern, Hamilton and Hare, Knitster LDN, Mackintosh, Natasha Zinko, Orlebar Brown, Paul Smith, Per Gotesson, Phoebe English, PREEN by Thornton Bregazzi, Qasimi, River Island, ROKSANDA, Simone Rocha, Sunspel and Victoria Beckham.
