British Fashion Council Announce Scholarship Recipients

Posted on

The recipients of The British Fashion Council Education Foundation’s 2015 MA scholarship scheme have been revealed – Gabriella Sardena from Manchester School of Art will study the MA Fashion Textiles, Benny Andaloo of Central Saint Martins will study the MA Menswear Course and Shaun Harris from Kingston University will be undertaking the MA Fashion Womenswear course at the Royal College of Art due to the funding.

Donations from Net-a-Porter, Coach Marks & Spencer and Eisha Bharti Pasricha fund the scheme, while it is also partly supported by HM Government with Employer Ownership funding through Creative Skillset. Previous winners include Aitor Throup and Erdem Moralıoğlu.

Sarah Mower, co-president of the BFC Education Pillar alongside Meribeth Parker, stated that “With the news that UK fashion colleges are some of the top in the world, it is more important than ever that we are able to support the exceptionally talented students who would otherwise be significantly held back, or deterred, by the high cost of fees and living expenses attached to studying fashion… The trustees are extremely grateful to every donor who has stepped forward to support the Foundation. Their contributions alleviate individual student debt and allow talent to develop. In the long term, they will underpin the vibrancy of British fashion culture and ensure the success of the UK’s fashion industry in the future.”
