The fourth British Library x British Fashion Council (BL x BFC) competition will launch in autumn 2020.
We’re taking the competition online this year, with contributions and valuable input from a range of leading designers streaming live to you via two interactive masterclasses.
The webinars will feature contributions from leading designers, British Library and British Fashion Council representatives and previous winners of the British Fashion Council X British Library fashion research competition.
Topics will include how to access and use digital resources for fashion research, diversity and inclusiveness, and Positive Fashion and students will be asked to design a digital portfolio referencing inspiration from across the Library’s digital collections.
The masterclass webinars and the fashion research competition is part of the British Library's continuing partnership with the British Fashion Council. The partnership highlights the importance of research for fashion designers and students, including how the UK national collections can enhance fashion education and business.
If you are studying fashion at one of the institutions in the BFC Colleges Council please contact your course leader for further details.
Recordings of the webinar series will be available here after the live broadcasts.
