The British Fashion Council and Fashion Awards have unveiled a collaboration with the United Nations Office for Partnerships to recognise those who are helping deliver the Sustainable Development Goals.
Young Chinese fashion entrepreneur Wendy Yu, an investor in British fashion brand Mary Katrantzou, aims to build a fashion empire and plans to invest on average in two fashion brands a year, she told FashionNetwork.com.
UK sustainable luxury brand Bottletop has opened on Regent Street as the street continues its rise as a destination for debut/flagship stores. And the new store is a blend of art, technology and ultra-sustainability.
Bottletop worked together with local artisans from London, Salvador, Sao Paulo and Rio to design and create the costumes worn by Brazilian singer Ludmilla and her dancers at the Rio 2016 Opening Ceremony.
