BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund

The Fund aims to celebrate exceptional talent and empower businesses to play their part in positive growth through mentoring and funding

Established in 2013, the BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund aims to celebrate exceptional talent and empower businesses to play their part in positive growth through bespoke high-level business mentoring and professional services and awarding of a cash prize. The applicant's collection should consist primarily of menswear and/or menswear accessories and/or all gender collections and not primarily consist of womenswear or childrenswear.                                           

The BFC recognises the value of positive growth, talent and excellence in design. Part of the vision around how to reset the industry includes understanding the breadth of fashion business models, with this in mind the criteria for this fund has been updated to reflect excellence in talent and positive development within businesses.                                                                               

Since its inception, winners of the BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund include A-COLD-WALL* (2019), Craig Green (2016), E Tautz (2015) and Christopher Shannon (2014).     

The BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund is part of the BFC Foundation (Registered Charity Number: 1185152) which brings all of the BFC’s charitable initiatives under one umbrella supporting the future growth and success of the British fashion industry by focusing on three areas: Education, Grant-Giving & Business Mentoring and Institute of Positive Fashion.
