British Fashion Council to honor Kate Moss with award
Nov '13
The British Fashion Council announces that Kate Moss will receive a Special Recognition Award at the British Fashion Awards for her remarkable 25 year-long career and continued influence on the fashion industry as the fashion icon of her generation. Kate will receive her honour at the British Fashion Awards on Monday 2nd December, the London Coliseum.

Kate’s hugely successful career began in 1988 when she was discovered in New York by Sarah Doukas, founder of Storm Model Management. Today, her career continues to surprise and delight both the fashion industry and her fans.

She is fearless and intuitive when it comes to choosing her projects, has a strong work ethic and an inherent knowledge of the fashion industry, and it is these qualities which endear her to everyone she works with. Kate has collaborated to create some of the most celebrated and iconic fashion photography, and she remains an inspiration to designers, photographers and artists.

“Kate Moss has made many people dream. And not only people that look at fashion but those that create it as well. The moment she puts on an outfit, it takes another identity. She adds personality to fashion and I personally, can never get enough of her.” – Mario Testino

“From the very beginning Kate was iconic; she never had to become a model. She has the same energy, the same seduction and the same wit - infront of the camera and with everyone, I love you Kate!” - Donatella Versace

She has worked with every designer of note, including Mcqueen, Galliano, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Saint Laurent, Dior, Calvin Klein, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and her editorial still sets the bench mark high in terms of sheer versatility, originality and its ability to communicate the aspirations and realities of many generations. Her work with Corinne Day at the age of 15 remains instrumental in shaping the face of the fashion industry, and Kate is synonymous with the spirit of British innovation.

Kate’s ever-diversifying achievements in the fashion industry have seen her launch her own collections for TOPSHOP, Longchamp, Fred and Rimmel. Her next collection for TOPSHOP will launch in 2014.

As the world’s most prolific Vogue cover girl - Kate has appeared on 34 covers for British Vogue alone - it was a natural move for her to be appointed contributing fashion editor for the magazine. Her first story will be published in a forthcoming spring issue.

Kate has previously been awarded model of the year at the British Fashion Awards in 2006 and in 2009 was the first individual to receive a British Fashion Award decided entirely by public vote. The London 25 award was introduced in celebration of 25 years of British fashion to recognise an individual who embodies the spirit of London and British fashion. Won by Kate, the success of this award led to the British Style Award being introduced the following year.

Established in 1989, the British Fashion Awards celebrates the contributions of British designers, creatives, models and style icons that are renowned for their ability to set the global fashion agenda. The winners of the 2013 British Fashion Awards will be announced on Monday 2nd December at the London Coliseum.
