The spotlight was also on Manolo Blahnik, who was honored with the Outstanding Achievement in Fashion award. When it comes to high-end footwear, Blahnik has raised the bar, and this award celebrates his contributions to fashion. Nicholas Kirkwood walked away with the Accessories award, the most prestigious accolade a British shoe, jewelry, millinery or accessories designer can receive. Erdem Moralioğlu’s namesake label won the New Establishment award—well deserved, as his unique prints have taken the industry by storm.
Congrats to all 14 award winners!
