The British Fashion Council has released the names of nine finalists for the recently-launched BFC Changemakers Prize. Three winners, to be chosen in September, will receive a £7,500 cash prize and mentoring package.
Harrods is the latest major name to enter the rental space and, like others, the company is teaming up with a fashion rental specialist in order to do it. The company is linking with My Wardrobe HQ on the move.
In celebration of Manufacturing Day 2020, the CFDA has announced three new developments that seek to support domestic manufacturing, including the third round of its A Common Thread microgrant program.
The second round will see a total of $2,015,000 distributed, of which $1,015,000 will go to 36 companies, including 18 fashion and accessories brands, 13 retailers, three factories, and two other businesses.
Under the 'Act for Good' campaign, those who donate to A Common Thread through Omaze will be entered into the running to win VIP experiences, like the opportunity to shadow Annie Leibovitz on a Vogue photo shoot.
