Here Is What You Should Expect From Tonight’s Fashion Awards
Dust off your highest heels and make sure to steam your favourite party frock – the Fashion Awards are happening tonight and it’s bound to be a Party. Yes, that’s a capital P. It’s all happening at 8pm at the Royal Albert Hall, and while the main part of the award ceremony is still pretty much under wraps, we’re here to bring you a little Fashion Awards cheat-sheet as a reminder of all information that’s already out there.
After Karlie Kloss in 2017, the co-host Jack Whitehall will tonight be joined by supermodel Alek Wek in her big hosting debut. The crystal trophies that will be given out to the luckiest lot of the night were for this occasion designed by Ghanaian British architect David Adjaye in collaboration with Swarovski, symbolising a prismatic piece of design achievement that weighs just over 1.4 kg.
In addition to the ten main categories, there are five special awards, winners of which have already been announced. Miuccia Prada is taking the Outstanding Achievement Award, Dame Vivienne Westwood will be getting her Swarovski Award for Positive Change. Photo duo Mert and Marcus are being honoured with the Isabella Blow Award, the Special Recognition Award for Innovation is going to the Parley for the Oceans environmental organisation, and as of today, it’s been announced that Kim Jones is named as the 2018 Trailblazer.
Another novelty for this year’s edition is the New Wave: Creatives category, honouring 100 of the most innovative and inspiring young creative talent from around the world. As the final 60 got announced last week, we were happy to see some good friends of Ten Towers on there, including our Senior Fashion Editor-at-Large Harrry Lambert. The full list also includes a diverse group of names like DJ Peggy Gou, stylist Marc Goehring and photographer Coco Capitan to name but a few.
All things considered, tonight is definitely worth tuning in. Make sure to follow all that goes down via our Instagram (@10magazine) and comes tomorrow and we’ll share all the goss on the best-dressed, the winners and everything else you need to know about. Ce-le-brate good times, come on!
