BFC NAMES 2017 GRANT RECIPIENTS

Drapers

"The British Fashion Council has named the 11 designers that will split a £450,000 grant as part of its annual Fashion Trust financial and mentoring support scheme"
 

BOOHOO BUSINESS MODEL PUSHES FAST FASHION TO STEP UP A GEAR

Financial Times

"The £18 dresses and £4 T-shirts that have powered the rapid expansion of the online fashion retailer Boohoo are considered by its management to be akin to food — perishable goods at risk of going stale should they sit unsold for too long"
 

HOW TRUMP AND BREXIT COULD RESHAPE ASIAN FASHION

South China Morning Post

"The fashion industry has flourished in a globalised world, but experts suggest Asian designers and manufacturers would be wise to shift focus from the West to regional consumers if US protectionist policies and Britain’s EU exit unravel traditional markets"
 

FASHION INDUSTRY COALITION AIMS FOR 30 PERCENT SUSTAINABLE COTTON BY 2020

Eco Business

"A new industry coalition wants to cut the confusion out of responsible sourcing and make recyclable, sustainable cotton a mainstay of the fashion industry." 


A NEW MODEL FOR SHOPPING MALLS

Business Of Fashion

"The world’s most successful retail developers reveal the strategies that are helping them thrive in an environment where many traditional malls are struggling to survive."
 

THE DESIGNER AND RANCHER ON A MISSION TO MAKE FASHION GREEN

NY Magazine

"Designer Gabriela Hearst talks sustainability, politics, and her new collaboration with Planned Parenthood"
 

IN THE AI WARS, MICROSOFT NOW HAS THE CLEAER VISION

Tech Crunch

"In recent conferences held by tech giants Microsoft and Google, Artificial Intelligence first is a topic widely focused on, as is Mixed reality where VR, AR and other technologies are blended together"
 

WHY PERSONALISATION IS RETAIL'S GREATEST OPPORTUNITY

Drapers

"The possibilities to drive engagement and ultimately conversion, are endless. Targeting customers at exactly the right time with targeted communications and content will ensure fashion retailers and brands stand out from the competition by offering an experience that feels tailored and personal."
 

THE ECO GUIDE TO UNUSUAL MATERIALS

The Guardian

"Fabrics such as cotton come at a dear cost to the environment. Look for progressive alternatives made from pineapples, eucalyptus, even mushrooms"
