Caroline Rush CBE, the Chair of the CITIB.

Caroline Rush CBE, the Chief Executive of the British Fashion Council (BFC), is the Chair of the Creative Industries Trade & Investment Board (CITIB). The CITIB was created as part of the pioneering sector deal agreed between industry and Government to continue the success of the creative industries which contribute £115.9bn a year to the UK economy.

Since her appointment as Chief Executive in April 2009, Caroline Rush has focused on strengthening the British Fashion Council’s network and platforms to connect businesses with global audiences, both trade and consumer.

During this time London Fashion Week has become a globally recognised platform for creative and innovative fashion talent. London Fashion Week Men’s was launched in 2012 and more recently due to the global pandemic London Fashion Week merged womenswear and menswear and pivoted to a digital-first event.

The Fashion Awards has become the global award ceremony for the fashion industry and raised millions for the BFC Foundation and its charitable projects. In 2020, Rush spearheaded the launch of The Institute of Positive Fashion as an engine room for change, galvanising the industry to address how it can more positively impact the environment, the people and communities.

As part of this work, Rush and the BFC launched the first ever Diversity & Inclusion Steering Committee made up of industry representatives to address key challenges facing minority communities in gaining fair representation within the fashion industry.

Rush is also the co-founder of LOCA, a digital platform and global community that allows brands and talent to connect and collaborate more efficiently and Chair of Advisory Board of Everywoman.
