Fashion 2012 was the
official fashion industry activity for the Olympic year. Created by the
British Fashion Council (BFC), it was a central platform under which the
industry was able to showcase and celebrate British fashion. It
provided a core focus for the industry and a schedule for the major
fashion events and activities throughout London’s Olympic year.
Fashion 2012 had three key objectives – to celebrate and showcase our
extraordinary talent in the world of Fashion; to inspire and educate
young people to get involved with the industry; and to leave a legacy of
future support and nurturing for our fashion stars of tomorrow.
The programme was announced on 16th September 2011 at the opening of
London Fashion Week by BFC Chair Harold Tillman CBE and London Mayor
Fashion 2012 highlighted the breadth and depth of the talent in the UK and positioned London as THE creative capital.
