The BFC have joined forces with PFAFF Sewing machines to give sewing machines to the BFC scholars and BFC Colleges Council students for the duration of their studies.
For students, this could be a moment of crisis, especially those unable to find employment to subsidise their education, or those whose parents suddenly face unemployment due to Covid-19 cuts. Covid-19 jeopardised the education of fashion students who faced making their collections with limited access to the university and their equipment as well as missing out on the creative connections and opportunities of university life.
As we start to imagine beyond the pandemic, this initiative is to support disadvantaged students in the wake of Covid-19, and to combat the effects it’s had on fashion students potentially facing financial difficulty through college fees and the cost of living, and who may otherwise not be able to afford machinery.
