50 Global Creative Talents to be Recognized at the Fashion Awards 2021
The British Fashion Council (BFC) unveils its 2021 New Wave: Creatives – a list of the fifty most innovative and inspiring young creative talents from around the world. The list includes trailblazers from across multiple disciplines, including artists, casting agents, hair and makeup artists, image makers, nail artists, set designers, stylists and writers. This year’s finalists – hailing from the UK, Ghana, Austria, Germany, The Netherlands, Nigeria, China, the US and beyond – were voted for by last year’s NEW WAVE: Creatives; the 2020 line-up directly influencing that of 2021 in a meaningful act of peer-to-peer advocacy.
The final fifty will be celebrated as part of The Fashion Awards 2021 presented by Ticktok, on Monday 29th November at the Royal Albert Hall, London. The event, which will evolve to a global entertainment platform to celebrate fashion’s role at the intersection of culture, will celebrate the people and organisations who have led change in the fashion industry this year.
Celebrated young photographer, Stephen Tayo – himself a NEW WAVE: Creatives recipient in 2020 – has captured intimate portraits of this year’s line-up, his sitters dialing in from around the world via FaceTime to Tayo’s Lagos studio
