For the first time, this year’s awards will also honour 100 of the most innovative and inspiring talents from around the world, ranging from makeup artists and models to digital influencers and journalists, voted for by 2,000 members of the fashion industry.

Additional awards that are not voted for but chosen by the British Fashion Council and which will also be awarded on the night are Outstanding Achievement, the Swarovski Award for Positive Change, the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator and the Special Recognition Award for Innovation.
