London born luxury footwear and accessories brand Charlotte Olympia launches a one-of-a-kind BA scholarship at Cordwainers (London College of Fashion, UAL).
Starting this Autumn, the new scheme will fund the final three years of one lucky student’s four year BA and include a paid internship at the luxury footwear brand Charlotte Olympia. The scholarship is the first of its kind for the British Fashion Council Education Foundation and is part of the Council’s effort to attract budding new talent into the industry.
Charlotte Olympia Dellal, founder and creative director of the footwear brand, herself studied at Cordwainers and is passionate about both giving back to the renowned school and supporting new innovators in the ever-growing British accessories industry. The scheme is available to current first year students on the The BA (Hons) Cordwainers Footwear: Product Design and Innovation Course and Dellal herself will be on the panel of judges to choose the talented student.
