Tillman extends British Fashion Council chairmanship

Harold Tillman is to extend his chairmanship of the British Fashion Council through 2012.

The role, with an initial three year commitment, was due to expire but key stakeholders including representatives from media, government, BFC patrons and sponsors favoured a term extension. It will make Tillman the British Fashion Council’s longest serving chairman.

Boris Johnson, Mayor of London said: As well as maintaining London Fashion Week’s position as one of the most influential international showcases for design, he has been pivotal in the BFC’s efforts to nurture up and coming designers. With fashion playing a key role in our celebrations for 2012, Harold will help ensure London’s status as a big hitter in the global fashion stakes.”

Tillman took over as honorary chairman in 2008 from Sir Stuart Rose – introducing initiatives such as the Vogue Designer Fashion Fund and the China British Fashion Alliance, as well as implementing a new structure with Caroline Rush as chief executive - moves that have helped put the organisation on the map at international level.
