We at the British Fashion Council (BFC) are witnessing the horror and feeling hurt and compassion for those impacted by the terrorist attacks on Israel, the escalating violence in the region, the loss of innocent lives and the increasing hate crimes toward both the Jewish and Muslim communities across the world and here in the UK.
We understand that that our community is made up of individuals from different backgrounds and with different beliefs. We hold space and compassion for the Jewish and Palestinian people as well as Israel.
The BFC opposes terrorism and violence against all civilians. Our hope is that this cycle of violence will end and that there is a way to focus on humanity, to embrace and accept our differences whilst we collectively strive for peace.
