The British Fashion Awards took place this year on November, 27th at Lawrence Hall, Westminster. Organised by the British Fashion Council and supported by Swarovski and hosted by TV presenter and DJ Zoe Ball, the event celebrated the very best emerging and established talent within the British fashion industry, recognising designers and figures that have made a significant contribution over the past year. The Awards were judged by a committee of top fashion media, retailers and influencers, being chaired by Alexandra Shulman, editor of British Vogue.
Lily Allen also attended the award after having launched her label for New Look recently this year called ‘Lily Loves’. A-List celeb Thandie Newton was present to present an award. Other celebrities at the event included Kelly Osborne, Lisa Snowdon and Donna Air.
