The United Kingdom is one of sustainable fashion’s leading and most innovative markets worldwide. In consequence and within the framework of its efforts to build bridges in the fields of culture and education between Great Britain and the rest of the world, the British Council provides support, training and visibility to local artists to enable them to make the leap towards sustainability in the fashion sector. In specific terms the British Council assists artists through training and awards for innovative and sustainable projects, helping them to pave their way into both British and international markets.
