Earlier this week, Highsnobiety took to the 2018 Fashion Awards red carpet to discuss 2018's industry highlights with the people who made them happen.

Led by Fen O'Meally, conversations dived through key hot topics — from talking diversity with Jordan Dunn and Alek Wek, sustainability with Parley for the Oceans founder Cyrill Gutsch, to dissecting Britain as a cultural powerhouse with Riz Ahmed — it's clear that creating a fairer, more mindful space is at the forefront of everyone's agenda. Find out what they have to say in the video above.

Of course, the ceremony itself was full of highlights: A-COLD-WALL*, Richard Quinn, and OFF-WHITE were all recognized for their respective game-changing approaches to the industry, Kim Jones is now an official Trailblazer, and Gucci bagged brand of the year.
