the-fashion-awards-2016-winnersThis year’s Fashion Awards in partnership with Swarovski recognised talent in design, creativity, business as well as outstanding contributions to the fashion industry. On 5th December at the Royal Albert Hall, London 4,000 members of the fashion industry and the public gathered to watch this year’s awards, where an international set of winners were announced at a larger ceremony than ever before.

The glamourous event is the only global celebration bringing the best of the fashion industry together and gives the public the chance to rub shoulders with the world’s biggest stars.

The celebration has been an important part of the fashion calendar since 1989. Last year’s ceremony saw VIPs and industry heavyweights in attendance including Anna Wintour OBE, David Beckham OBE, Karl Lagerfeld, Lady Gaga, Naomi Campbell, Nick Knight OBE, Olivier Rousteing, Samantha Cameron and Victoria Beckham.

This year’s Fashion Awards raised funds for the British Fashion Council’s Education Foundation charity for education scholarships to help the best talent attend leading fashion colleges.
