The British Fashion Awards night about to begin.
Victoria Beckham announced as winner by Marc Jacobs
On Monday night the VFS team donned our Georgia Hardinge dresses and Baartmans and Siegel suits and headed down to The British Fashion Awards to show our support for British Fashion.
Each year the British Fashion Awards celebrates their creativity and success. British designers and creatives are renowned for their ability to set the global fashion agenda.
Established in 1989, the British Fashion Awards was born from the British Fashion Council’s then five-year-old Designer of the Year Award. For more than 20 years, the British Fashion Awards has been celebrating the contributions of British designers, creatives and models to the international fashion scene.
The British Fashion Awards begins with a drinks reception followed by dinner and then the awards ceremony itself. For 2011, the Awards took place on Monday 28th November at the Savoy Hotel
What a night! at the reception we had the chance to catch up with some of our Selection Panel judges, Susie Lau, Marios Schawb, David Koma, Jessica Bumpus, and so other friends Including the nice girls from Fashion Monitor, Hillary Alexander... some champagne and nibbles to share a night where all the key industry people was celebrating British Fashion.
The gala after the reception was a night full of surprises and big big announcement as big as the presenters, winners and guests.
From our studio we congratulate Christopher Raeburn, and Mary Katrantzou. Being awarded as Emerging talent, in the Menswear and Womenswear categories.
