British Fashion Awards 2017

Kensington Gore, Kensington, London SW7 2AP, UK
Let me take you to the fashion's night of the nights. On this Monday's night (4.12.2017), the Royal Albert Hall in London was filled with an immense number of successful people from the fashion industry and with all the fashion lovers who came to celebrate the talents, achievements and fashion icons. In a nutshell, a night not to be missed. 

This event was held in partnership with Swarovski and hosted by Jack Whitehall and Karlie Kloss. Both of them did a really great job throughout the evening. As the event was without a break, they were running around the place to make everything work which was very impressive. On top of that, Karlie presented 7 different dresses during the show highlighting the work of Erdem, Dior, Gucci, Calvin Klein, Versace, Celine or Vivienne Westwood. 
The awards were split into 14 categories, namely:
Designer of the Year – Raf Simons for Calvin Klein
Accessories Designer of the Year – Jonathan Anderson for Loewe 
Model of the Year – Adwoa Aboah 
Business Leader – Marco Bizzarri for Gucci
Urban Luxe Awards – Off-White
British Emerging Talent - Womenswear – Michael Halpern for Halpern 
British Emerging Talent - Menswear – Charles Jeffrey for Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY
British Designer of the Year - Womenswear – Jonathan Anderson for JW Anderson
British Designer of the Year - Menswear – Craig Green for CRAIG GREEN 
Outstanding Contribution to British Fashion Awards – Christopher Bailey MBE 
Swarovski Award for Positive Change – Maria Grazia Chiuri for Dior
Fashion Icon – Versace & Artistic Director Donatella Versace
Special Recognition Award for Innovation – Stella McCartney OBE
Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator – Pat McGrath MBE

The fashion nominees were recognised for an outstanding contribution to the fashion industry. It was so surreal to listen to all these people and share the moments of appreciation with them. I am deeply inspired by all the people who were presented in the room that night and who won the awards.

It truly was an amazing feeling to be even able to see people you had the opportunity to work with for a moment or see them in person during other fashion events and experiences, such as Henry Holland, Yasmin Le Bon or Phoebe English.
Altogether, it has created a memorable moment for me. If anything, the fashion industry is an inspiring place to be because it provides me with motivation to work on myself and do my best to achieve my goals and be proud of what I do. And that's pretty good, right? 
Throughout the night, the hall also paid a tribute to Azzedine Alaïa (couturier), George Michael (singer/ songwriter) or Franza Sozzani (Italian journalist and editor-in-chief of Vogue).
