Continuing to celebrate the very best of the global fashion community, last night’s Fashion Awards honoured leaders of the past and the future. Chosen from all over the globe, the nominees represented “the most creative talent and innovative businesses of the year,” BFC chairman Natalie Massenet told press while introducing the list back in October.

The highly anticipated Model of the Year Award, presented by the iconic Eryka Badoo, went to model and activist Adwoa Aboah. It marks the end of a very successful year for the Gurls Talk founder, as well as fronting the first cover of Edward Enninful’s British Vogue last month, she was also honoured GQ‘s ‘Woman of the Year’.

Raf Simons’ exceptional contributions to Calvin Klein earnt him the Designer of the Year award while Craig Green took home British Designer of the Year. Jonathan Anderson scooped two awards, British Designer of the Year – Womenswear for JW Anderson and Accessories Designer of the Year for Loewe.
