On Monday 2 December, the British Fashion Awards 2019 was held at the Royal Royal Hall of Art in London, which is awarded annually to models, designers and influencers for achievements in the fashion industry. We’re going to tell you about the winners and the most remarkable moments.

Designer Daniel Lee, who was appointed as a Creative Director of the Bottega Venetafashion house just a year ago, stile the spotlight. He managed to win in four categories at once: Accessories Designer of the Year, Womenswear Designer of the Year, Brand of the Year and Designer of the Year. He beat such industry masters as Kim Jones, Alessandro Michele and Miuccia Prada. The jury noted his influence on a young audience and the way he creates media interest around the brand. Lee’s ability to generate hype is remarkable. This year, the Bottega Veneta bag was recognized as the most Instagram one and coveted accessory among women. More than that, for the first time, the brand was named as one of the most popular in the world according to Lyst.

Naomi Campbell’s young student, Sudanese-born Adut Akech, was named the Model of the year.

Naomi Campbell was recognized as a Style icon and became the first black woman to win this nomination. Alexander McQueen’s Creative Director, Sarah Burton was called the Industry trailblazer, and Giorgio Armani was honored for his outstanding achievements.
