The Full List of Winners of Fashion Awards 2017

gettyimages-692994172_-_h_2017It’s award season! The Oscars, the BAFTAs, you name it. But the most important one – Fashion Awards 2017 – took place last night, at the Royal Albert Hall in London, in the company of a star-studded audience consisting of fashion’s most important gate-keepers. Previously British Fashion Awards, the Swarovski-sponsored prize recently re-named itself to open up for an international market; and in the process, establishing itself as the most authoritative fashion award in the world. This was felt yesterday, as the event attracted the industry’s key players to celebrate as well as remember the unique power and play in fashion, even in these dark times. A particularly emotional moment was super model Naomi Campbell’s tribute to the late Azzedine Alaïa, whose recent passing sent shock-waves through the industry; while recently appointed Dior creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri remembered the notorious and wildly ambitious Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani, who passed earlier this year in her battle with cancer. These two moments of mourning and reflection suited the event, which is otherwise known for constantly pursuing the new and “ground-breaking”. From models to young designers in both mens and womenswear, the best of the fashion year 2017 was crowned by a glamorous roster of presenters – highlights include current British Vogue cover girl Adwoa Aboah as Model of the Year and Raf Simons for Designer of the Year – a title he has very much earned after stellar collections at Calvin Klein as well as his eponymous brand in the last 12 months.
