The Fashion Awards is a ceremony held annually in the United Kingdom since 1989[1] to showcase both British and international individuals and businesses who have made the most outstanding contributions to the fashion industry during the year. The ceremony is organized by the British Fashion Council, and is the primary fundraiser for the BFC’s Education Foundation; a charity which promotes excellence in design by financially supporting students with the ability and potential to make an exceptional contribution to the fashion industry.

In 2016, the British Fashion Awards was rebranded as The Fashion Awards.[2]

The Fashion Awards 2017 in partnership with Swarovksi was held at the Royal Albert Hall on Monday 4 December.

History & notable events[edit]

Originally named the British Fashion Awards, the first Fashion Awards ceremony took place on 17 October 1989 and was attended by Princess Diana, who wore a Catherine Walker gown especially for the occasion.

Lee Alexander McQueen receives posthumous award[edit]

Stylist Isabella Blow remembered[edit]

In 2007 the Fashion Creator Award is renamed Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator in honour of Isabella Blow, who died on 7 May 2007. Blow was renowned for her unerring support of British designers and for her contribution to the international fashion industry as a whole.
