The most anticipated British fashion event of the year is back for another edition. Like every year, The British Fashion Council will reward the emerging designer talents who had a major impact on global fashion during the last 12 months.
For one night only the UK’s top designers, hottest models, and an extensive line-up of glamorous celebrity guests come together to honour the fashion elite, at the prestigious British Fashion Awards. The British Fashion Awards celebrates and promotes extraordinary creative talent in the UK fashion industry. Since its inception, the Awards have been a highlight of the industry calendar on par with the BAFTA and BRIT Awards.
After a live-setting edition due to the pandemic, The British Fashion Council (BFC) is delighted to announce that The Fashion Awards 2022 will take place on Monday 5th December 2022, returning to the iconic London venue The Royal Albert Hall. The event will celebrate fashion at the intersection of culture and is a global entertainment platform for brands, creatives, designers, artists, and tastemakers who come together to celebrate the industry.
Last year, The Fashion Awards opened with a tribute to Virgil Abloh by British actor Idris Elba, who recited Maya Angelou’s ‘When Great Trees Fall. A poignant opening is also expected for this year.
The charitable aspect of the event is also important to note. The Fashion Awards is the main fundraiser for the BFC Foundation, the charity that brings all the BFC’s initiatives under one umbrella, supporting the future growth and success of the British fashion industry by focusing on education, grant-giving, and business mentoring with official partners Getty Images and Moët & Chandon.
General Public tickets for The Fashion Awards 2022 will go on sale later this year via Ticketmaster.
