Molly Goddard Receives BFC/ Vogue Designer Fashion Fund

BFCTen Towers is positively humming with excitement this morning at the news of Molly Goddard’s BFC/Vogue crowning yesterday evening. Among a very strong shortlist of fellow nominees and having come so close as LVMH prize finalist last year, Molly’s achievement is all the more spectacular, albeit not exactly a surprise. Molly has enjoyed a phenomenal year of success that has seen her hand-crafted creations grace both the V&A and Tate Modern in the past 12 months, with her signature tulle looks featuring in every glossy fashion book out there. In the words of Edward Enninful OBE, “Molly Goddard is an original, she has a singular vision that has propelled her label to an international level. She is the definition of talent and what Britain does best in our creative industry”. Couldn’t have put it better ourselves. On a night where the BFC were celebrating the £2.2 million raised for charities and business support initiatives over the past 12 months, Molly’s success is a testament to the rude health of British Fashion. Also announced were the 2018/ 19 NEWGEN recipients which included a number of familiar faces alongside a fair few first-timers; Alighieri, Isosceles, Matty Bovan, Per Gotesson, Supriya Lele and The Season Hats. See the full list below.
