The global hub for bridal fashion commits to the Agenda 2030 creating a better world for girls. The BBFW launches an unprecedented partnership in the fashion industry together with Save the Children to empower girls worldwide through education and reduce drastically the number of girls that are forced to marry before they turn 18.

When girls and young women are empowered, they can change the world. Take action.

Why urgent action is needed?

Every 7 seconds, a girl under the age of 15 enters into a forced marriage. This situation affects more than 12 million girls every year, who are exposed to the risk of losing their fundamental rights.

The COVID-19 pandemic is leading to more people ending up in poverty in many countries, forcing millions of girls to work to support their families, run out of food, drop out of school and be victims of forced marriage.

With the support of the entire bridal fashion movement we can prevent this from happening.

Together we can stop child marriage

Now, more than ever, we need your support. Together we can contribute to keep transforming the lives of thousands of girls in Mauritania through Save the Children´s project "Stop Child Marriage”. 

Join the dream – and help hundreds of girls, adolescents and young women realise their dreams too
