Karl Lagerfeld to be honoured at the British Fashion Awards

Karl 2

The unstoppable force that is Monsieur Karl Lagerfeld (King Karl to us mere peasants) will be honoured for his contributions to fashion at this month’s British Fashion Awards. Which is exciting news for him, but more exciting for us. We can’t wait to bask in his presence. Like a life giving force. “Karl Lagerfeld defines outstanding,” said Natalie Massenet, chairman of the British Fashion Council. “His life’s work for his own, and so many extraordinary brands, has written the language of fashion. He is the ultimate visionary and we celebrate not only the decades already passed, but those yet to happen. In Karl’s hands the future of fashion will be an exceptional one.” King Karl will join a hall of fame that includes Anna Wintour, Terry and Tricia Jones and Manolo Blahnik, who have all won the Outstanding Achievement Award. Not bad company, eh? A true fashion coven.

The British Fashion Awards will be held on November 23rd at the London Coliseum
