FASHION FUNDS: The British Fashion Council has named the four students who have won M.A. scholarships for 2016 through the British Fashion Council Education Foundation on Tuesday.

They are Cassandra Verity Green, a B.A. graduate from Central Saint Martins, who will attend the fashion women’s wear course in accessories at Royal College of Art; Cavan McPherson, a B.A. graduate from Central Saint Martins, who will study fashion women’s wear, with a specialization in knitwear at the RCA; Geraint Brian Lewis, a B.A. graduate of the University of South Wales, who will study for the men’s wear course at University of Westminster, and Yasemin Cakli, a B.A. graduate of University of Westminster, who will study the men’s wear course at University of Westminster.

This year’s edition of the BFC’s Fashion Awards 2016 — which will take place at the Royal Albert Hall in December — will aim to raise funds for the BFC Education Foundation.

The BFC Education Foundation is a U.K. registered charity, and its scholarship initiative is supported by donations from Charlotte Olympia, Coach, Dame Natalie Massenet, Eiesha Bharti Pasricha, Marks & Spencer and Mulberry. The scheme aids B.A. and M.A. scholarships. The initiative is also supported by the British government with a program that allows employers to invest in employees’ skills.

Previous winners of the scholarships include Erdem Moralioglu, who won in 2002, and Aitor Throup, who won in 2004.
