But way back, wasn't there a tax rebate for parents that would cover the grant? I remember a colleague telling me about this. That would have been in the 70s I guess.

The Japanese fashion designer, Kenzo Takada, has died of Covid-19 at 81. I had a couple of Kenzo shirts in the early 90s, just before he sold the brand to the LVMH Group. Very bright. I was hanging on to the 80s back then.
You filled in a load of forms (stating parental income/mortgage/outgoings &c.) with your local LEA (council) who then worked out how much maintenance grant you got. Some students got the full amount. Can't remember the figures now, 30 odd years ago for me...

Kenzo, the brand, has been trash for a few years now.
As I posted earlier, I had a couple of shirts in the early 90s I quite liked. All those brands including the likes of Etro and Paul Smith tend to hit a peak where there is a buzz after which they settle into chain store concession mediocrity. Kenzo did sell the brand on as well in the mid 90s.
