Burberry Expands the ReBurberry Fabric Programme with the BFC

In a bid to further support creative communities and promote a circular economy, Burberry are to once again donate to the ReBurberry Fabric programme in partnership with the British Fashion Council (BFC).

Launched in partnership with the BFC back in 2020, the programme provides donations of leftover fabrics to fashion students, upcycling surplus fabric and saving it from going to waste. Through a second donation, a total of over 12,000 metres of fabric have now been handed out to more than 30 fashion schools and universities in the UK, including the Edinburgh College of Art and the University of Brighton.

By embodying Burberry’s belief that “creativity opens spaces”, the brand hope the scheme will encourage the next generation of designers to consider new ways of thinking about their creative methods, how they source their materials and also ways to develop “tomorrow’s approach to fashion design and production”.

“We are committed to supporting the next generation of exciting creatives while ensuring we all do what we can to protect the environment.” Nicole Lovett, Responsibility Programme Director at Burberry, says in a press release. “We’re proud to be working with the British Fashion Council once more to help emerging diverse talent achieve their ambitions, while reinforcing the importance of sustainable practices and circularity. By equipping students with these materials and tools to help their creativity thrive, we can all create a better future for our industry.”

Through its Institute of Positive Fashion and BFC Colleges Council, the British Fashion Council is helping Burberry’s donations – which include a variety of fabrics from past collections – reach the hands of young creatives and up-and-coming designers. Providing a blueprint for brands and colleges to work together to offer practical support for future talent, the initiative enables creativity in a way that is positive for the environment, education and the collections of future creatives.

Of the programme Caroline Rush, Chief Executive at the British Fashion Council says: “One of the BFC’s priorities is to encourage the industry to move towards a circular fashion economy while supporting excellence in fashion design. We are delighted to work with Burberry, helping ensure students across the country have access to the best quality fabrics. Creative talent is at the heart of the industry and we are proud of our world-leading colleges – being able to provide these students with such opportunities is a privilege.”
