The British Fashion Council has announced that The Fashion Awards 2016, previously known as the British Fashion Awards, will take place on December 5 at London's iconic Royal Albert Hall in partnership with Swarovski.

The Fashion Awards 2016 will celebrate the best of British and international talent from the global fashion community, in London.

The new format has a core aim - to raise significant funds over the next ten years for education scholarships to help the best talent attend leading fashion colleges. The Fashion Awards will be an annual fundraiser gala for the British Fashion Council Education Foundation charity.

“Our aim is to make the Fashion Awards 2016 bigger and better than ever and will celebrate the global fashion industry at the beautiful and iconic London venue, the Royal Albert Hall. Nadja and her team at Swarovski have made these awards possible and we are thrilled to be working in partnership with them once again. As a global industry we should make a commitment to support talented people from all backgrounds to fulfil their dreams and access the best universities in the world. Over the next ten years our ambition is to raise and invest 10million pounds to support young people in this goal. London is seen as the capital for the most creative new talent in the world that provides talent and energy for the global fashion industry,” said BFC Chairperson Dame Natalie Massenet.

Nadja Swarovski, Member of the Swarovski Executive Board commented: “Supporting emerging talent and celebrating creativity is in Swarovski's DNA, so we are delighted to partner again with the BFC on the Fashion Awards, which are not only celebrating the most creative expression in fashion on a global scale, but also raising funds for education in fashion.”

Each year the awards are voted on by the BFC's international judging panel, made up of over 800 key industry figures, from all corners of the fashion community. This celebration has been an important part of the British fashion calendar since 1989.

Last year's ceremony saw over 450 VIPs and industry heavyweights in attendance, alongside a sold out auditorium of over 2,000 guests, with attendees including Anna Wintour, David and Victoria Beckham, Karl Lagerfeld, Lady Gaga, Naomi Campbell, Nick Knight, Olivier Rousteing and Samantha Cameron.
