This year FFC has joined forces with mission driven music artist, Elle L to host a series of events using the power of arts to create change in the mindset of audiences and funding grassroots conservation. She's played a pivotal role in bringing to life FFC visions over in the UK and Europe, from hosting a press event with United Nations at London Fashion Week to being our key partner and ambassador for this year's Whitley Fund for Nature (WFN) Hope Gala at Natural History Museum with WFN trustee, Sir David Attenborough.
Together we are aligned in our vision to make a positive impact through the arts—inspiring people to connect with nature and directly supporting conservation.
Elle L - Music Artist, U.K. Ambassador
Elle L described as “One to Watch, Now and Beyond” by Clash Magazine and is currently the sound of Lacoste’s Pour Femme campaign. She represents a wave of 360 millennial artists who also write, model and direct. inc. special projects for CNN International, London Fashion Week and Copenhagen Fashion Week. Elle is an active advocate for the environment with a focus to awaken herself and others to our relationship with nature and find ways to protect it. Elle is about to release a body of music inspired by a recent trip to the Peruvian Amazon where she was able to witness both the beauty and devastation we are facing.
Compelled to create change, Elle puts her creativity and growing media presence to good use on her mission to awaken herself and others to our relationship with nature and is on a mission to find ways to protect the planet. She is hotly tipped by major tastemakers like BBC introducing as one of the most promising future pop stars of today and has been fundamental in curating and bringing to life Fashion for Conservation's runway show for WFN. Her Grandfather was an award-winning marine biologist, CBE on the Queen's research team. Elle also comes from a line of established artists.
"If we come together and take action to live and create more consciously, we can protect future generations, ecosystems and wildlife"
Recent Project with Elle L X Whitely Fund for Nature
With the consult and support of British Fashion Council, FFC has produced our latest runway show with Elle L -- featuring designers Mother of Pearl [Winner of this year's BFC x Vogue's Designer Fund] & Deborah Milner [Former Head of Couture].
" Fashion for Conservation is a project that has lead me to the depths of the Peruvian Amazon and to be even more immersed in Fashion Week than simply attending. As an artist, I'm hugely inspired by nature and the alliance to reverse industries like fashion's impact on the planet through conscious creative projects, runway shows, collaborations and media spotlight awareness and fundraising drives is making a real difference. Working alongside The Whitley Fund for Nature and helping them curate this year's runway show and raise £1m fund the root of heroic conservation efforts has been a monumental moment to bridge fashion to grassroots conservation.”
