This year the British Fashion Awards became The Fashion Awards, a renaming that now celebrates international fashion industry names alongside the British ones. Hosted at the Royal Albert Hall, the ceremony hosted 4,000 guests and was compered by comedian Jack Whitehall.
2016’s CSM alumni winners included Alexander McQueen, who won the British Brand award. The award was accepted by another CSM alum, Creative Director Sarah Burton, who declared she has always thought of McQueen “as more of a house than a brand”. Simone Rocha (MA Fashion) was awarded British Womenswear Designer, while Craig Green (MA Fashion) won British Menswear Designer. Molly Goddard (both BA and MA Fashion) took home the British Emerging Talent prize.
Congratulations to all the winners, and to MA Fashion 2016 graduate Michael Halpern, whose graduate collection was worn to the ceremony by Italian Vogue Fashion Director Giovanna Battaglia – see the gallery below.
