Having hosted, and been so inspired at The Fashion Awards presented by Pandora with the BFC Foundation in December 2023, I wanted to build relationships with new designers, and that’s why it’s been amazing to forge an even stronger connection with the charity this year. I’m looking forward to becoming more involved with the amazing work it does in building programmes that continue to elevate British talent”.
