The BFC Fashion Trust, the British Fashion Council’s charitable initiative, has partnered with Eco-Age to curate a unique sustainable fashion mentorship programme for its grant recipients. The BFC Fashion Trust was founded in February 2011 to offer selected designers mentoring and financial support to promote the art and business of fashion.

“So many incredible designers have flourished with the support of the BFC Fashion Trust; we are truly honoured to work with the next generation to shape the future of the fashion industry for the better!” Livia Firth, Creative Director Eco-Age.

Eco-Age’s sustainability and communications consultants will curate unique workshops to introduce some of London’s most gifted designers to key environmental and social issues in the fashion industry and provide innovative sustainable solutions.
