British Fashion Council teams up with Netflix on Bridgerton project

Bridgerton British Fashion Council

Three young designers have created dresses inspired by the hit series Bridgerton as part of a partnership between the British Fashion Council and streaming service Netflix.

BFC Scholars Aurélie Fontan, Edward Mendoza and Shanti Bell, were mentored by British designer Richard Quinn to create “fabulous period costumes worthy of modern-day gossip columns”.

The final designs were modelled by the stars of the series – which is set in the Regency era – Phoebe Dynevor, Nicola Coughlan, Claudia Jessie, Adjoa Andoh and Golda Rosheuvel. They were photographed by Amber Pinkerton.

Gemma Juviler, Commercial Director, British Fashion Council said: “This year has been one of the hardest for the British fashion industry. We are delighted to partner with Netflix to support our talented designers to work on one of the biggest shows of the year – Bridgerton.

“This collaboration with Netflix illustrates the vital position fashion plays in television, the actors’ characters were brought to life by our scholars’ beautifully designed looks for the campaign shoot.

“Richard Quinn, awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design in 2018, has also played an instrumental part in mentoring the scholars during the design process – demonstrating the power of BFC’s network and the importance of education in this partnership.”
