This year’s Fashion Awards will be the first truly post-pandemic edition, so it should be a big night, as the British Fashion Council (BFC) says it will take place on December 5.
The awards will take place at the Royal Albert Hall in London and will celebrate «fashion at the intersection with culture» while being a «global entertainment platform for brands, creatives, designers, artists and trendsetters coming together to celebrate the industry.»
In addition to being a major red carpet event, the Fashion Awards are the main fundraiser for the BFC Foundation, the umbrella charity for all BFC initiatives.
Last year’s Fashion Awards had a huge impact, despite fears that the pandemic was about to make a comeback with the rise of the omicron variant.
The event was tinged with sadness due to the passing of Virgil Abloh the day before, but it still lived up to the hype and was a great trend driver.
Several reports in the days following the event noted that search terms skyrocketed based on what many of the attendees were wearing.
