The British Fashion Council has announced that it intends to present Vogue Editor-in-Chief and Conde Nast Art Director with a special award for excellence in the industry. The 2014 British Fashion Awards will take place at the London Coliseum on December 1st.
The legendary Anna Wintour, who already holds the Order of the British Empire, will receive an award for her enormous contribution to the fashion industry. The Fashion Council especially emphasized that over the course of her long career in fashion, Wintour has helped raise more than $ 20 million to support HIV / AIDS patients and helped open many new designers.
“Anna Wintour is truly awe-inspiring with her passion and dedication to the fashion industry, her work ethic and support for young talent is truly unique,” said Christopher Kane. - I owe a lot to Anna, who believed in me from the very beginning. Without her support and friendship, I would not be where I am now. " British Fashion Council Chair Natalie Massenet added: “There is not a single person working in fashion who is not inspired by Anne's leadership skills. Therefore, we are going to honor Anna at this year's British Fashion Awards as editor, businesswoman, philanthropist, mother, friend and fashion icon. This award recognizes her achievements and contributions to the global fashion industry and pop culture."
