LONDON, Oct 27, 2009 / FW/ — Capping the British Fashion Council’s 25th anniversary celebrations is the 25th annual British Fashion Awards which will celebrate the best of British fashion. Supported by Swarovski, the awards gala is slated on 9th December 2009 at The Royal Courts of Justice, WC2.
There are 11 awards that will include the 25th Designer of the Year, Menswear Designer, Model, Designer Brand and the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator.
These are the industry’s most prestigious awards and are voted for by leading fashion directors and editors from the UK’s media and design fashion retailers. The evening is attended by over 500 industry leaders, celebrities, designers, retailers, models and journalists to celebrate the best of British fashion.
An international panel of fashion opinion formers will also decide which designer has been the most influential throughout the course of their career and should receive this year’s award for Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design.
Having been title sponsor of the BFA’s for four years, Swarovski is once again supporting two awards which recognise and financially reward emerging design talent with the Swarovski Emerging Talent Awards for ready to wear and for accessories.
