British Fashion Awards 2015: The Countdown

BFA

Ten Towers is counting down the hours (yes, hours!) until tonight’s British Fashion Awards. And like starlets on the morning of the Oscars, we will be practicing extreme beauty treatments, like eating clay and spending the rest of the afternoon in a cryogenic chamber. You know – we must look our best for the red carpet, darling! So, what can we expect from tonight’s glamorous celebration of all things fashion? Well, this morning, the British Fashion Council, the clever people behind the annual ceremony have released some facts and figures. There’ll be 2130 people in the audience at the Coliseum, 15kg of Swarovski awards, 1800 goody bags. But more importantly, there will be 1374 bottles of Cava, 1750 bottles of beer and 1750 cocktails. And 42 butlers to serve it all. So, well, the countdown begins until tomorrow’s hangover too. But, enough about us – the show will see 45 nominees and 17 winners – all from the list below. Ten Towers offers good luck to one and all! Stay tuned to 10magazine.com for all the results and behind-the-scenes action tomorrow…
