The ceremony was held at the Royal Albert Hall with the participation of celebrities from the world of fashion and art. Every year for more than 30 years, the British Fashion Council has been presenting awards in several categories - those who create fashion and those who inspire them.
Of course, the audience is always looking forward to which of the stars will be declared an icon of style. Let’s shatter this intrigue right away - the Naomi Campbell super model received the Icon Award. She appeared on the red carpet in an Alexander McQueen dress. A long outfit with embroidery with shiny threads on black lace made her look like an Egyptian princess. The author of this magnificent dress - creative director of Alexander McQueen Sarah Burton was also not left without a well-deserved award - she was awarded the prestigious Trailblazer Prize.
The British Fashion Awards has an element of unpredictability. Although, as a result, awards are received by all who are obviously worthy, the intrigue still remains until the last moment.

He was recognized as the best designer of the year, the best designer of women's clothing, as well as the best designer of accessories.

The best model of the year was named 19-year-old Adut Akech. A girl from Australia was born when her family was forced to flee from South Sudan. Once Adut even said that inside she would always remain a refugee, but she would receive a decent education and her mother would be proud of her. She kept her word - went to study and work. In a short time, Adut Akech has become one of the most sought-after models in the world. Surely, her mother more than once experienced pride in her daughter - when she stood on the stage of the Royal Albert Hall with an award in her hands.
