Presenter and journalist Mariella Frostrup will host this year's British Fashion Awards on Tuesday, 25th November 2008 at Lawrence Hall, Westminster.

Organised by the British Fashion Council and supported by Swarovski the evening is attended by over 500 industry leaders, celebrities, designers, retailers, models and journalists to celebrate the best of British fashion. The Awards are judged by a committee of top fashion media, retailers and influencers, which is chaired by Lucy Yeomans, editor of Harper's Bazaar.
