August 14, 2017 | D&LOn Monday December 4th, the Fashion Awards will take place at The Royal Albert Hall, and it’s set to be an even greater celebration than the last.
In partnership with Swarovski, the Fashion Awards will continue to praise and show appreciation to a number of designers, emerging talents, business leaders, models and more for their contribution to – not just the fashion industry – but the entertainment and vast world of media alike.
Highlights of the night will include the announcement of three very special awards, which are the Outstanding Achievement Award, the Swarovski Award for Positive Change and the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator.
When speaking about the event, British Fashion Council (BFC) chairman, Natalie Massenet said: “Last year, we set the goal of raising £10million in ten years to educate talented young people.
“The resounding success of last year’s awards, as a spectacular gala to honour so many incredible individuals and also as a fundraiser, reinforces that this is a target that the industry supports.
“Swarovski and the BFC share the goal to promote, support and educate talent.”
Plus, after hearing that Swarovski has pledged £30,000 to ensure “that young talent has access to the best education available, regardless of financial background”, this was a significant and touching gesture that will support people in more ways you can think of.
In closing, Nadja Swarovski, member of the Swarovski Executive Board said: “An essential part of Swarovski’s mission is to nurture young designers and invest in the next generation of fashion talent.
“Young designers are the heartbeat of our business, and it’s up to all of us to foster and champion their visions to keep our industry thriving.”
We’re looking forward to hearing the winners of the night!
