2014 British Fashion Awards
British designers and creatives are renowned for their ability to set the global fashion agenda. Each year the British Fashion Awards celebrates their creativity and success. The British Fashion Awards has been celebrating the contributions of British designers, creatives and models to the international fashion scene since 1989.
I attended this years award ceremony, it is by far one of my favourite annual fashion events aside from fashion weeks and the VS fashion show. The red carpet was jam-packed with the likes of Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss, Kendall Jenner, Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Rita Ora, Lewis Hamilton, Harry Styles, Victoria Beckham and my inspiration and the girl that has been my role model since the age of 10, Emma Watson.
I will be writing blog posts about the British Fashion Awards Best Dressed, my take on this years awards ceremony and of course I will be writing a ‘What I Wore’ post.
But first, the winners are…
