Ralph Lauren will receive the Outstanding Achievement Award in fashion at the Fashion Awards 2016, announced the British Fashion Council. Ralph Lauren, who has established himself as a pillar of the global fashion community, will be honoured for his invaluable contribution to the industry on December 5, 2016 at the Royal Albert Hall, London.

The Fashion Awards 2016 will be organised by the British Fashion Council in association with Swarovski to celebrate the best talent from the fashion industry. The event will be the inaugural annual fundraiser gala for the British Fashion Council Education Foundation charity. The education foundation offers scholarships to talented young people to study BAs and MAs and offers funding for apprenticeships to develop much needed industry skills. The British Fashion Council aims to raise £10million over the next ten years for the charity.

“Ralph Lauren is an exemplary designer and businessman. He has helped to define an era in both American and global fashion with his singular vision; I know that most of us would say he has inspired us immeasurably. He has built an outstanding legacy and I look forward to celebrating him for years to come,” said Dame Natalie Massenet, chairman of British Fashion Council.

Over the past 50 years, Ralph Lauren and his iconic brand have helped shape and define the American fashion identity in a unique and resonant way. Ralph Lauren had introduced his tie and menswear business in 1967. Five years later, he was presenting a full line of Polo by Ralph Lauren menswear at New York Fashion Week in 1972, the same year he launched a womenswear line. The Ralph Lauren family of brands has since shaped the contemporary image of quintessential Americana, encompassing Lauren’s realisation of an aspirational lifestyle with glamour, sophistication and integrity. Ralph Lauren has been responsible for countless cultural moments that have shaped the fashion world, from iconic and cinematic advertising imagery, early adoption and integration of technology, and a long-lasting romance with Hollywood’s story-telling and glamour.
