The Fashion Trust offers business support through financial grants, mentoring and funding to provide traineeships to graduates.

Grants and Mentoring

The Fashion Trust provides selected designers, whose applications are successful, with financial awards for key areas of business development and a tailored mentoring programme, delivered by the BFC through their global network of advisors focused on building business knowledge, development and growth.

Graduate Traineeship Programme

Final year BA and MA graduates are invited to apply for a 12-month paid placement with a British based designer. The programme has the dual benefit of allowing graduates to gain insight and experience and for the designer’s business to benefit from additional support.
