The UK’s fashion industry was in the spotlight last night, as the British Fashion Awards ceremony took place at the London Coliseum. 400 key figures of the fashion industry voted to select the 17 winners of the annual awards which are sponsored by Swarovski.
 
Womenswear 
He won the Red Carpet last year, but 2014 saw Erdem step it up a notch as he was awarded the Womenswear Designer of the Year title for his elegant dresses.  
 
Menswear  
Meanwhile, when it came to menswear J.W. Anderson, who is also Creative Director at Loewe, was the recipient of the Award.
 
Accessory Designer
Anya Hindmarch has taken the world by storm with her colourful and fun Frosties designs this year…no wonder she received the Accessory Designer award.  
 


Models Poppy Delevingne, Cara Delevingne, Joan Smalls & Karlie Kloss.
Model 
It didn’t really come as a surprise that Cara Delevingne bagged herself the “Model of the Year” award. 2014 has been a busy year for the 22 year old, who has walked for the likes of Chanel, Saint Laurent Paris and Givenchy as well as appearing in campaigns for brands such as Burberry, Tom Ford and Mulberry.
 
Brand of the Year
Having opened her first flagship store in Mayfair this year, Victoria Beckham’s efforts to grow her eponymous label were rewarded by being given the Brand of the Year award.


British Style Award
The British Style Award, which is voted for by the public, went to actress Emma Watson.
 
Outstanding Achievement
Anna Wintour was presented with an Outstanding Achievement Award by none other than designer John Galliano who will be taking the creative reigns at fashion house Maison Martin Margiela.
 
With key fashion figures and numerous celebrities in attendance, the Awards were certainly a reminder, if anything, that Britain cultivates some outstanding fashion talent.
