The British Fashion Council (BFC) announces that Stella McCartney has been named Designer of the Year, receiving the highest accolade at the British Fashion Awards 2012.
 
Stella also received the Designer Brand award on behalf of her eponymous label, picking up two awards on the evening, both of which recognise a momentous year for the designer through her achievements in the fashion industry and her contribution to Team GB in 2012.
 
The evening saw 14 awards presented to the leading figures in fashion, recognising creative talent and design excellence across all areas of the industry. Hosted by Gemma Arterton and Nick Grimshaw at the Savoy Hotel and theatre, the British Fashion Awards were attended by industry leaders, retailers, models, celebrities and media supporting both the winners and nominees of these prestigious awards. Guests on the evening included BFC Ambassador Samantha Cameron, Harold Tillman CBE, Valentino, Manolo Blahnik CBE, Stella McCartney, Sarah Burton, Christopher Kane and Alexa Chung. 
 
“The British Fashion Awards are a significant event which represents the culmination of extraordinary talent, creativity and innovation across the whole industry. The ceremony provides the perfect conclusion to what has been an exceptional year for British fashion and we're very proud to celebrate the achievements of all the nominees here this evening.” - Harold Tillman CBE, Chairman of the British Fashion Council.
 
Mr Tillman was honoured on the evening with a Special Recognition award for his term as Chairman of the British Fashion Council and contribution to the fashion industry. In light of the award, Mr Tillman commented “The last five years have been extraordinary and seeing the BFC and the fashion industry go from strength to strength is a reward in itself so it is completely unexpected to be given this award.  My term as chair ends in just a few weeks time and I am so grateful to all those at the BFC and our designers who have inspired and supported me in equal measure. It has been an honour to serve this great industry for so long - Thank you all.”
 
The honour of Outstanding Achievement in Fashion was awarded to Manolo Blahnik CBE. This special award is one of the most significant of the evening; it celebrates and recognises one designer, who throughout their career, has made an impact on the global fashion industry and the award pays tribute to Manolo’s extraordinary career and contribution to fashion.
