British Fashion Council Reorganizes
(NEW YORK) As part of the British Fashion Council’s 25th year legacy plan, chairman Harold Tillman has announced some major restructuring. Hilary Riva, who has served as the BFC’s CEO for the last four years, will be stepping down from that position but will remain with the council, taking on a role which will focus on future development projects. Taking Riva’s place will be Caroline Rush and Simon Ward, who will become joint chief executives.
“Caroline and Simon have both worked with the British Fashion Council for many years,” said Tillman. “They are equally committed to making the British Fashion Council an even more dynamic organization; through very different but complementary skills they will drive more new initiatives and more opportunities for talented British designers to showcase, develop and grow.” With the new team in place, the BFC is poised to further develop London Fashion Week, establish and grow a business support package for British designers as well as explore the BFC’s role within the industry to bring together designer support organizations to increase opportunities and funding for the British businesses.
