Last night, fashion’s finest came out in full force for this year’s Fashion Awards, celebrating the best and brightest talents.
Held at the Royal Albert Hall, J.W. Anderson scooped both British Womenswear Designer of the Year, for his synonymous label’s women’s line, and Accessories Designer of the Year for his work at Spanish fashion house Loewe, while Craig Green bagged British Menswear Designer of the Year for the second year in a row, and Raf Simons took home the highly coveted Designer of the Year accolade, celebrating his output across his synonymous label and his recent work reconfiguring iconic US brand Calvin Klein.
Elsewhere, London’s party wunderkid Charles Jeffrey claimed British Emerging Talent award in Menswear for his highly acclaimed LOVERBOY aesthetic – his first Fashion Awards prize (congrats, Charles!), Dior womenswear designer Maria Grazia Chiuri won the special Swarovski Award For Positive Change for her “longstanding commitment to female empowerment” and Burberry‘s Christopher Bailey was awarded the Outstanding Contribution to British Fashion Award – at what will be his final Fashion Awards at the helm of the British heritage brand having announced his exit earlier this year.
