What does this initiative mean to you?
Cayley Cochrane, BA (Hons) Fashion, Edinburgh College of Art
To me this initiative means opportunity. It allows the designers of tomorrow to bring new life to the most luxurious designer fabrics, that as students we would otherwise not have been able to work with, whilst also allowing us to link our education and designs with one of the biggest names in the industry.

This initiative was an opportunity to experiment and be creative without the burden of cost associated with using high-quality materials. Burberry’s donation allowed me to experiment without bounds. For an aspiring designer, it’s reassuring to know that luxury fashion brands are actively looking to support young creatives in the industry.

I feel so privileged to have been involved in this initiative. It’s given me a further insight into the fashion industry, allowing me to set myself goals, with the ambition of being able to work with fabrics from such a prestigious company all the time. It’s giving me something to aim towards with my studies.
