According to the New York Times, Black representation in fashion is widely inconsistent. The BFWF Scholarship Fund provides an educational grant to African Americans who are limited financially and have displayed a compelling desire to pursue a career in the fashion industry, despite adverse situations they have encountered. The recipient of the educational assistance award will be slated to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology in the Spring of 2023.
Shop LC is a Business Champion in Education, awarded by the Austin Chamber of Commerce, for its Fashion Collective program. The program bridges the gap between classroom and career among high school students. Shop LC is expanding this program to all Austin area high schools and college students pursuing fashion.
