Last night, the British Fashion Council announced the winners of The Fashion Awards 2017. Held at the Royal Albert Hall, the star-studded event drew A-list celebrities and icons.
Fourteen awards were given out during the procession, nine of which were voted on by over 2,000 industry veterans. The other five were special recognition awards given to deserving industry figures. J.W.Anderson picked up two prizes, one for his accessory designs at Loewe and the other for the womenswear line of his eponymous label. Virgil Abloh‘s Off-White™ earned the Urban Luxe award, while Craig Green and Raf Simons each won a category of Designer of the Year — British Designer of the Year Menswear and Designer of the Year, respectively. Meanwhile, for her decades-long stint at the eponymous label begun by her late husband, Donatella Versace was recognized as this year’s Fashion Icon.
