The British Fashion Council (BFC) is delighted to announce the winners of the British Fashion Awards 2013. Voted for by over 300 individuals in the fashion industry, the winners were awarded at the annual ceremony that took place Monday 2nd December at the London Coliseum.

Guests including Samantha Cameron, Donatella Versace, Kate Moss, Harry Styles, Miuccia Prada, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sienna Miller, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Tinie Tempah gathered to celebrate the successes of the fashion industry over the past year.

The evening saw a total of 16 awards presented to the leading figures in fashion, recognising creative talent and design excellence across all areas of the industry. The ceremony was hosted by one of the UK’s most exciting comedy talents, Jack Whitehall, and was attended by industry members, including retailers, models, celebrities and media, and for the first time this year, members of the public who purchased tickets to attend.

“The roll call of winners announced this evening is a phenomenal display of talent in the fashion industry. The British Fashion Awards give us the chance to commend not only the winners but celebrate all of the individuals that contribute to the incredible achievements that make London the best fashion destination in the world.

"I’m incredibly proud to be a part of the ceremony this evening, set in the heart of our creative capital; it provides the perfect climax to a truly momentous year of British fashion.” - Natalie Massenet, Chairman of the British Fashion Council

The prestigious Womenswear Designer of the Year accolade was awarded to Christopher Kane. The award, which is given to a designer who has been instrumental in enhancing women’s fashion, recognises a triumphant year for the London-based brand.

Christopher Kane has developed a reputation as one of the most talented and innovative British designers. Securing a partnership deal with the Kering Group followed by another two internationally acclaimed ready-to-wear collections at London Fashion Week have established Christopher Kane as a leading global star.

The honour of Outstanding Achievement in Fashion was awarded to Terry and Tricia Jones by collaborator, colleague and family friend, Dylan Jones OBE. This special award is one of the most significant of the evening; it celebrates and recognises the iconic couple’s tremendous contribution to the fashion industry. i-D Magazine, founded by Terry and Tricia in 1980, became the leading source of creative inspiration for it’s generation. 30 years on, it continues to impact the fashion industry on an international scale.
