NEW WAVE: Creatives, the BFC’s celebration of emerging talent, continues to form an important part of the spirit of The Fashion Awards, which in this exceptional year will take a digital-first approach on Thursday 3rd December.
This year sees the introduction of a two-stage voting system for NEW WAVE: Creatives, beginning with 2019’s NEW WAVE recipients, who were invited to nominate their younger industry peers. A highly-influential Steering Committee of fifteen industry powerhouses has also been introduced to the project - the newly-created Committee will determine 2020’s recipients.
A final group of fifty NEW WAVE: Creatives will benefit from a year-round programme including powerful advocacy, meaningful generation of work and constant access to the British Fashion Council and the Steering Committee.
