The BFC/Bazaar Fashion Arts Foundation aims to nurture collaborations and foster relationships between fashion, film, music and art talent.  Through this strategy the BFC aims to highlight London’s position as a leading creative capital and re-affirm our fashion industry’s reputation for innovation.

The Foundation includes a partnership with BAFTA which will see a series of events to bring together fashion and film talent. The initiative will also see the appointment of Alison Edmonds as the Foundation’s British ambassador in Los Angeles, to further cement our international presence.

A dedicated music strategy in partnership with Sony Music will cultivate commercial opportunities for designers, musicians and retailers. A series of biannual collector’s edition CDs, under the collective banner of ‘The Collection – London Fashion Week’, will be launched during LFW. Each CD will feature a different designer. The first in the series has been musically and artistically curated by Burberry’s Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey. It will be released on Monday 20th September and will retail on iTunes and in high end fashion retailers including high end fashion/design outlets including Browns, Cruise, Matches and START.
