2016 Fashion Awards to honour 32 fashion creatives
British make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury, fashion photographer Mario Testino, Showstudio.com director Nick Knight and Love’s Katie Grand are to be honoured at this year’s British Fashion Awards on 5 December at the Royal Albert Hall.
For the first time the event, organised in partnership with Swarovski, will significantly recognise the role and influence of creatives in the fashion industry.
The British Fashion Council has decided to give the Creative Influencer Award to 32 people, a number chosen to reflect the 32nd anniversary of the first Fashion Award given by the BFC.
Over 1,500 key members of the global fashion industry including media, retailers, creatives and key opinion formers were called on to vote for this year’s accolades.
The winners were selected for their exceptional achievements and excellence throughout 2016, and recognised as the individuals behind the images, the shows and the campaigns whose influence has shone this year.
“A key part of our new focus for The Fashion Awards is ensuring we recognise all of the industry’s key players. Thirty two years after giving our first award, this new approach means recognising excellence in both business and design, as well as putting a spotlight on creatives working outside both of these spheres,” said Dame Natalie Massenet, BFC Chairman.
Honourees will include Alasdair McLellan, Alastair McKimm, Ashley Brokaw, Camilla Lowther, Camilla Nickerson, Charlotte Tilbury, David Sims, Edward Enninful, Gary Card, Glen Luchford, Guido Palau, Harley Weir, Isamaya Ffrench, Jamie Hawkesworth, Joe McKenna, Karen Langley, Katie Grand, Lotta Volkova, Lucia Pica, Marcus Piggott, Mario Testino, Mert Atlas, Nick Knight, Pat McGrath, Patrick Kinmonth, Paul Hanlon, Ronnie Cooke Newhouse, Sam McKnight, Shona Heath, Sylvia Farago, Tim Walker, and Tyrone Le Bon.
