Lucy Yeoman's to head BFC Press Committee

So, in a not altogether surprising move, the British Fashion Council have announced that Lucy Yeomans, editor of Harper's Bazaar has been appointed chairman of the BFC press committee, replacing Alex Shulman of British Vogue. So I guess that means it'll be Lorraine Candy of British Elle next and so on until in ten years time it'll be headed up by the editor of Cosmpolitan.

The press committee comprises leading fashion directors, fashion editors and creative directors from British broadsheet newspapers and leading fashion magazines. who offer collective advice to the BFC on the organisation of London Fashion Week, lend expertise to advisory panels for the selection of designers to show at LFW and in the exhibition. The press committee also plays a key role in proposing and voting for the long and short list of nominees for the annual British Fashion Awards.
