House of Holland, Emilia Wickstead and Zoe Jordan receive BFC Fashion Trust funds

House of Holland, Emilia Wickstead and Zoe Jordan are among the recipients of the British Fashion Council (BFC) Fashion Trust.

Grants totalling £215,000 will be split between eight designers, including previous recipients Mary Katrantzou, Michael van der Ham, Osman, Richard Nicoll and Todd Lynn.

The trust was founded in 2011 to offer selected designers business support through access to a network of advisors, mentors and services.

Christopher Kane, Jonathan Saunders, Mario Schwab and Roksanda Ilincic have also received funding in previous years.

Roksanda Ilincic said: “The support of the BFC Fashion Trust came at a crucial time for us. We were focusing on the business and commercial aspects of the company, and the opening of our first store, when the Trust introduced me and my team to talented mentors and advisors.

“The platform they have created with access to extremely influential people in the industry is invaluable for growing British designers like me.”
