The BFC's mission for NEWGEN is to support the growth of original new collections that have
the potential to make a mark on the international stage. Judging is undertaken voluntarily
by a panel of Britain’s top editors, buyers and industry leaders, who compare entrants
against the standards of excellence attained by former winners. Those selected will
receive sponsorship and mentoring tailored to the scale and positioning of their
products and businesses.
For 2018/2019, NEWGEN will be an annual initiative encompassing menswear, womenswear, accessories, fine jewellery and millinery. Support is available for up to six seasons (reviewed on an annual basis), and is provided on the specific needs of each particular business. Various support is offered from financial grants to business mentoring.
We only encourage those to apply who are ready to do so and are willing to undertake the full scale of commitment required.
Deadline for applications: Monday 5th March 2018
