The Fashion Awards 2016 took place last night in London: See the nominees & winners

End of October the nominations for The Fashion Awards 2016 were announced in Los Angeles, in attendance of selected international press. Among the nominees: true industry powerhouses by the likes of Gucci and Balenciaga , as well as urban luxury brands such as Vetements, Off-White and Gosha Rubchinskiy.

Earlier this year, up to 1500 members of the industry, including experts from various fields like media, retail, communications and creative disciplines such as photography, art direction, set design and production, had the chance to put forward their preferences for each category. The categories are divided into British and International.  An integral part of the event that took place yesterday and was sponsored by Swarovski, was fundraiser for the BFC Education Foundation that supports emerging talents in the fashion industry. Dame Natalie Massenet, the chairman of the British Fashion Council, already forecasted “this year’s ceremony will (..) be one of the most-anticipated highlights of the global fashion calendar.” And I think it’s safe to say we wholeheartedly agree!
