British luxury fashion house, Burberry, is continuing to encourage fashion students and create a circular economy with its second ReBurberry Fabric Program - donating leftover fabric to schools via the British Fashion Council (BFC).

The second gift brings the total quantity of fabric contributed to over 12,000 meters, which will be distributed to more than 30 fashion schools and universities in the United Kingdom, including the Edinburgh College of Art and the University of Brighton.

The program, which launched in 2020, promotes the next generation to investigate new ways of thinking about their creative techniques and material sourcing, as well as to "create tomorrow's approach to fashion design and manufacturing.

The BFC is assisting Burberry's gifts, which include a variety of textiles from previous collections, to reach the hands of young creatives and up-and-coming designers through its Institute of Positive Fashion and BFC Colleges Council.

The program provides a blueprint for brands and colleges to collaborate in order to give practical assistance to future talent while encouraging innovation in an environmentally friendly manner.

Nicole Lovett, Responsibility Programme Director at Burberry, said that they are dedicated to assisting the next generation of innovative creatives while ensuring they all do their part to safeguard the environment.

Lovett added that they're delighted to be collaborating with the British Fashion Council once more to support rising diverse talent while emphasizing the significance of sustainable methods and circularity. They can all aid their industry's future by providing them with these materials and skills to enable their creativity to bloom.

Caroline Rush, Chief Executive of the BFC, added that one of the BFC's aims is to encourage the sector to evolve towards a circular fashion economy while promoting excellence in fashion design. They’re thrilled to be working with Burberry to guarantee that students around the country have access to high-quality textiles. Creative talent is at the core of the business, and they are proud of their world-class institutions - being able to give such opportunities to these students is a joy.
