BFC launches new podcast series

Jun 9, 2021

The British Fashion Council (BFC) has released its third Fashion Forum podcast with the 10-episode series running until October.


Episode one features designer Olubiyi Thomas and the stylist and founder of Boy.Brother.Friend, KK Obi, talking to writer, model and podcaster Trey Gaskin about sustainability, creating authentic publishing, and how the fashion industry can help foster change. 

Further guests appearing in the series will include Christopher Morency, Harris Reed, José Neves, Phillip Picardi, Susie Lau, and Zinnia Kumar.

Aligning with the mission of the Institute of Positive Fashion (IPF), the podcasts are designed to help the British fashion industry lead in the goal “to be more resilient and circular through global collaboration and local action”.

Centred around the three Pillars of the IPF — Environment, People and Community & Craftsmanship — each episode shares “personal experiences as well as discussing the biggest issues in fashion today relating to areas such as positive change, diversity, sustainability, education, culture, and technology”. 

Previous series, first released in December 2020, have included Stella McCartney and Alex Fury discussing positive environmental change in fashion, Tommy Hilfiger and Jo Ellison talking about his brand’s work around inclusivity, equal opportunities and environmental initiatives; and Campbell Addy and Gabriella Karefa-Johnson speaking about breaking boundaries and the power of the collaborative spirit. 

The latest podcast is available to listen to on the londonfashionweek website, Acast, Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Google Podcasts.
