The Fashion Awards 2016 – the winners
Last night's new look Fashion Awards was the most high-profile and largest yet drawing in a host of global fashion icons and leaders to the Royal Albert Hall in London.
The new international focus meant that while some awards were reserved for British talent, for the first time many of the prizes – at the ceremony organised by the British Fashion Council in partnership with Swarovski – went to global names with Italy's Gucci picking up two awards for its CEO Marco Bizzari and creative director Alessandro Michele.
Perhaps even more impressive as the list of winners were the presenters who included Donatella Versace, Jared Leto, Tom Ford, Lady Gaga and David Beckham who gave the Outstanding Contribution Award to Ralph Lauren.
