The British Fashion Council held one of the fashion industry’s most esteemed award shows celebrating design and industry notables this evening, The Fashion Awards.

Welcoming an audience of over 4,000 guests at the Royal Albert Hall in London, the awards celebrated exceptional individuals whose imagination and creativity have broken new ground in fashion over the past 12 months; as well as brands and businesses that have transformed the possibilities of fashion today.

The evening, hosted by award-winning American actress, CEO, and producer Tracee Ellis Ross, celebrated sixteen awards, ten of which are put out to vote to an international panel of fashion industry experts, five Special Recognition Awards and a new Designers’ Designer Award, voted for by BFC Designer Members. Each winner was given a unique Swarovski crystal trophy, designed by Welsh artist, Ross Lovegrove.

Daniel Lee’s work with Bottega Veneta held sway over the voters this season taking home four awards including Brand of the Year, British Designer of the Year Womenswear, Accessories Designer of the Year, and Designer of the Year.
