The shortlist for the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund 2018, which aims to support the growth of a UK-based fashion brand, has been announced, with Marques’ Almeida and Molly Goddard among the candidates.
The BFC named Amy Powney of Mother of Pearl and Levi Palmer and Matthew Harding of Palmer Harding as the first winners of its tweaked BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund on Tuesday evening at an event in London.
The London shows start on February 17 at an unprecedented time of uncertainty for the fashion industry. Unsurprisingly, change is on the agenda but there's also continuity and the return of some old faces to the event.
British based designers Huishan Zhang, Mother of Pearl, Osman, palmer//harding, Shrimps, Sophie Hulme and Toogood have been nominated for the 2017 BFC Vogue Designer Fashion Fund. Winners will be announced 4 April.
