The CFC engages with governments and fashion industries within the Commonwealth through our (currently) 20 council members, comprising Fashion Week and Fashion Council organisers from across our Commonwealth family.  We actively collaborate to develop our programmes to add social and educational value to our members, whilst encouraging dialogue to create lasting and meaningful networks with the fashion sector, all in accordance with the principles of the Charter Commonwealth.

100% Made in the Commonwealth is at the core of what the CFC advocates. We want to create a culture producing 100% fashion goods within the Commonwealth. We want to encourage industries across the Commonwealth to come together to create products, responsible networks, and to support ethical and sustainable production and to protect regional crafts.
