BFC CEO Caroline Rush, also one of the judges involved, commented that the competition now includes some very successful names who have been past winners such as Erdem and Christopher Kane, and it offers young designers the chance to move up through the ranks quickly and grow to see their full potential. She explained:

“Our growing hall of fame of winners of the BFC Vogue Fashion Fund is incredibly impressive. We’re very proud of the hall of fame and it really has done everything we aspired the fashion fund to do. This is a brilliant opportunity, not only to potentially win £200,000, but a fantastic mentoring scheme, getting access to great experts in the industry. And these designers already have a global presence; they have a great following in the media. But it’s about really elevating them one step higher.”
