British Fashion Awards 2017

Adwoa Aboah

Award winner: Adwoa Aboah

The awards were swift and fast, but the fashion from that night will last an eternity. The event was held on the Monday 4th December at the iconic Royal Albert Hall. Hosted by Karlie Kloss & Jack Whitehall, the ceremony saw the very best of the British and international fashion industries joined by many socialites and celebrities who have embraced the ever-changing fashion world and who for the night decided to go bold, rather than stay safe.

The clothes on the red carpet varied from everyday fashion brands to the opulent, notorious design houses. Yet, here are the favourites from this glamorous event as well as some incredible moments that stood out amongst the rest.

Leomie Anderson looked groovy in a 60’s inspired sparkly dress, with white go-go boots and a high up-do to complete the look!

The Model of the year award as described by the event itself recognises the global impact of a model, male or female, who over the last 12 months has dominated the industry. This year for 2017, it went to the much deserved Adwoa Aboah.

Jourdan Dunn went orange for the red carpet and couldn’t have gone wrong with the dress from Versace and wearing Swarovski crystals to match. The big hair added extra style to the outfit.

The Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator was announced, and as described by the event itself recognises the very best innovators and creatives in fashion, with the award celebrating invaluable contributions that have changed the entire fashion landscape of 2017. This year the award went to our much loved Pat McGrath, fabulous moment for the night.

To finish off the fashion, Winnie Harlow looked absolutely stunning in her Brandon Maxwell number, with the soft, plush top part of her outfit, drastically contradicting her thigh-high skirt slit.
