The British Fashion Council has announced it will become an independent assessor for fashion visas as a new rule, that makes fashion professionals eligible for the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent visa, comes into effect.
The royal wedding turned into a social media celebration for British designer names with analysis from InfluencerDB showing huge media coverage generated by Clare Waight Keller, Stella McCartney, Kim Jones and more.
Aries, Nabil Nayal, and Teija are the trio of newcomers who will have a share of the £380,000 that is available in grants from this year's BFC Fashion Trust, as well tapping into a major mentoring programme.
News from the BFC is coming thick and fast at the moment. Just a day after naming Farfetch exec Stephanie Phair as its new Chair, the group has unveiled David Beckham in the brand new role of Ambassadorial President.
