And The BFA Winners Are…

CHRISTOPHER KANE was named Womenswear Designer of the Year at tonight’s British Fashion Awards – in the year that investment in his brand, by French luxury conglomerate Kering, confirmed him as an international fashion star of the future. Meanwhile, LVMH – Kering’s luxury competitor – also saw its new young British signings collecting awards, as JW Anderson scooped the New Establishment Designer award and Nicholas Kirkwood received the Accessory Designer of the Year award.

Burberry celebrated two wins on the evening, picking up both the Designer Brand of the Year and the Menswear Designer of the Year awards, while Edie Campbell beat Cara Delevingne and Sam Rollinson to the Model of the Year prize, and Miuccia Prada was honoured with the event’s inaugural International Designer of the Year award.

“The roll-call of winners announced this evening is a phenomenal display of talent in the fashion industry,” said Natalie Massenet, chairman of the British Fashion Council. “The British Fashion Awards gives us the chance to commend not only the winners but celebrate all of the individuals that contribute to the incredible achievements that make London the best fashion destination in the world. I’m incredibly proud to be a part of the ceremony this evening, set in the heart of our creative capital; it provides the perfect climax to a truly momentous year of British fashion.”
