After a year-long hiatus from a dazzling red carpet, The Fashion Awards is returning to the Royal Albert Hall on Monday, 29 Nov, 2021. While celebrating those who have had a transformative impact on the fashion industry in 2021, the British Fashion Council (BFC) is repositioning this year's event as an entertainment platform to show how fashion is a cultural meeting point for brands, creatives, designers, and artists.
The most anticipated awards at The Fashion Awards 2021 will go to Designer of the Year and the recipient of the BFC Foundation Award. Previous winners of Designer of the Year are Daniel Lee for Bottega Veneta (2019), and Pierpaolo Piccioli for Valentino (2018), with previous recipients of the BFC Foundation Award going to Wales Bonner (2019), and Molly Goddard (2018). Other notable awards include the Leaders of Change acknowledgment, and special awards given for Outstanding Achievement, the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator, the Fashion Icon Award, and the New Wave: Creatives list.
The Fashion Awards is a charity fundraiser for the BFC Foundation that supports the growth of the British fashion industry through education, grant-giving, and business mentoring. In the 2020/2021 year, the BFC raised £1.7 million for the BFC Foundation and supported 33 designers and students with financial support grants and mentoring during a very difficult year for everyone, particularly those in the creative industries. If you fancy attending The Fashion Awards 2021, tickets will be available from Tuesday 21 Sept at TicketMaster, with early release tickets being made available to American Express members from Monday, 6 Sept, 2021.
