As December nears, those of you with a keen eye on the ins and outs of the fashion world will no doubt be wondering in what format the Fashion Awards will be returning this year.
After taking last year’s event online due to the pandemic’s peak, this year sees the iconic ceremony celebrate a return to an IRL format as it lands at the Royal Albert Hall tonight.
Hosted by Billy Porter (yes, THE Billy Porter; the Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Award-winning actor, singer, and director) this year’s Fashion Awards is set to welcome a seriously epic line-up on the red carpet, attracting the biggest names annually in fashion design, modelling, music and film.
Following a momentous year of change and evolution, this year’s Fashion Awards – presented by TikTok – will expand its global reach with “a new creative approach and future-facing ambition,” while also “celebrating those who have had an important impact on the fashion industry in 2021.”
During months of digital experiences and socially-distanced catwalks which required a whole new sense of creativity, there has also been a renewed awareness of and enthusiasm for making positive change.
In light of this, the Fashion Awards structure has been reimagined to place fashion at the intersection of culture and will celebrate this year’s leaders who are changing the industry for the better.
