Italian fashion hits the Royal Albert Hall in London for the British Fashion Awards. In the evening, organised by the British Fashion Council, those who have distinguished themselves over the last 12 months in the field of British and world fashion have been awarded. The result: Bottega Veneta takes (almost) all of it. And the awards to Armani and Remo Ruffini reiterate the triumph of Italian fashion.
Bottega Veneta and Daniel Lee
The star of the evening was Daniel Lee, creative director of Bottega Veneta. Lee has won the most sought-after category, that of Designer of the Year. Lee (on the right, in the picture with actress Naomi Watts, who presented him with the award) defeated Alessandro Michele and Miuccia Prada. The British designer also won in the Accessories category and, in the United Kingdom, in the Womenswear category. And it doesn’t end here: Bottega Veneta takes (almost) all of it by winning the prize of Brand of the Year, too.
Ruffini and Armani
Remo Ruffini, Moncler CEO, secured the award for 2019 Business Leader. The London evening also saw the triumph of Giorgio Armani (in the photo, taken during the awards ceremony, alongside Julia Roberts and Cate Blanchett) in the Outstanding Achievement Award. A sort of award for his career “for the exceptional results achieved, for his timeless fashion, for his love for details, for an inimitable aesthetic that has been, is and will be a source of inspiration”, reports Vanity Fair. Among the awarded also Rhianna for Fenty and Naomi Campbell as fashion icon.
