BFC announces Future British, in support of new British designers
Boden and the British Fashion Council (BFC) have announced the launch of Future British – a brand new collaboration that will support new British designers (men's, women's or accessories) as they build their businesses in the fashion arena.
Over a twelve-month period, the designers that are selected to participate in Future British will benefit from Boden's knowledge and expertise.
As well as financial support, they will receive mentoring and guidance in all areas key to building a global brand, including product development, brand identity, lookbooks and PR and marketing, whilst being given the opportunity to connect with Boden's customer base of 1.5 million globally.
Recipients of Future British, a Boden-led programme, will also gain access to the brand's leadership team, including Chairman Johnnie Boden, CEO Julian Granville, Product Director Matthew Hilgeman and Global Brand Director Penny Herriman.
"I'm thrilled to announce the launch of our collaboration with the BFC to support start-up designer brands in Britain", said Johnnie Boden. "The aim of Future British is to give these individuals the opportunity to succeed as the next big clothing brand".
The BFC itself will provide additional support through the BFC Fashion Business Network. Future British participants will receive business development and mentoring from partners across all business areas, including legal, accounting, banking, production, content and communications.
"Future British is an exciting collaboration between Boden and the BFC, highlighting young, product-driven designers to a new audience", said CEO of the British Fashion Council, Caroline Rush.
"Utilising the resources and infrastructure of Boden, Future British aims to help young talent create great product at a good price point to establish viable business models, and ultimately, successful brands".
