British Fashion Awards winners and attendees
At the British Fashion Awards last night, Celine’s Phoebe Philo (in a tube dress from Fall/Winter 2010/011) took home the top prize, being honored as the Designer of the Year, beating Erdem and Christopher Kane. Lara Stone in Calvin Klein, won Model of the Year, and supermodels like Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer were also in attendance, posing with Edward Enninful and Nicolas Kirkwood. Two of the biggest British brands Mulberry and Burberry were awarded Designer Brand of the Year and Digital Innovation Award respectively.
The highlight of the night is when current McQueen creative director Sarah Burton accepted the Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design on behalf of Lee Alexander McQueen — “He was the bravest and most inspiring man I have ever met and we will always miss him,” said Burton in tribute.
