The worlds of fashion and celebrity came together yesterday evening for the biggest night on the fashion calendar:
Last night was the first in-person Fashion Awards since 2019, and the lewks didn’t disappoint. Highlights included Dua Lipa in custom
The industry came together to pay tribute to the trailblazing
The British Fashion Council also paid tribute to the many other talents we sadly lost this year, including the designer’s designer,
Kicking off the night was Griff, who serenaded the – bloody freezin’ – red carpet in an ethereal Simone Rocha frock. Then there was Kylie, who managed to perform an even sexier rendition of her 2003 hit “Slow” in a floral Richard Quinn catsuit, met with much fashion fangirling from the gays in the audience. To close out the night, Charli XCX wore a ’90s inspired Tommy Hilfiger get-up to perform her latest single, “Good Ones”, honouring Hilfiger, who took home the Outstanding Achievement Award, presented to him by super stylist Law Roach and the ultimate momager, Kris Jenner herself.
It wouldn’t be an award show in 2021 without some bonkers digital element. This year saw the BFC team up with Roblox, which staged its very own version of the award show within the game’s virtual platform. Creating an immersive experience, players could walk down the URL red carpet in their finest pixilated looks. Heck, we might even add some to our best-dressed list.
You’re a winner, baby. Picking up the gong for Designer of the Year was the incomparable Kim Jones, who was honoured for his phenomenal year at both Fendi and Dior Men’s. Elsewhere, Ib Kamara took home the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator, Nensi Dojaka was awarded the BFC Foundation Prize and Mr Hilfiger walked arm-in-arm with Naomi Campbell to pick up his Outstanding Achievement Award. Throughout the night, 15 designers, brands, creatives, and individuals were honoured for contributing to positive change within our industry – the late Abloh being one of them.
