Last night the British Fashion Council announced the winners of The Fashion Awards in partnership with Swarovski. Held in London's Royal Albert hall, the event drew in legendary figures from the industry as well as fashion-adjacent celebrities like Robert Pattinson, Uma Thurman and Lana Del Rey. The ceremony was closed with a performance from Boy George who dedicated his song to the late Judy Blame and Michael Howells.
One of the biggest awards of the night was the 2018 Trailblazer Award, which, without much surprise, went to Kim Jones on the back of his spectacularly modern Pre-Fall 19 mens show for Dior last month. Other notable wins included Gucci being crowned Brand of the Year, and Samuel Ross of A-COLD-WALL* taking home the award for British Emerging Talent for Menswear.
