The Winners of British Fashion Awards 2014

December 2, 2014

Fashion, more than any other industry, can claim to be master of the makeover. That alchemy was at work on Monday evening at the British Fashion Awards 2014.

Held at London’s Coliseum, Saint Martin’s Lane was closed to the public in order to accommodate a red carpet liberally sprinkled with over 12kg of loose Swarovski crystals. Inside the gilded theatre, guests cheered a win for Victoria Beckham, who took Brand of the Year off the back of opening her first stand-alone store in London’s Dover Street.

All the winners are listed below according to the running order at the Coliseum.

Emerging Womenswear Designer: Marques’Almeida
Ripped denim never looked as good as when Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida frayed all its edges and popped it on the London catwalk. Their latest collection showed they can do it with layered chiffon and leather, too.

Emerging Menswear Designer: Craig Green
Green’s madcap catwalk presentations have a cult following – on the Daily Mail newsdesk and otherwise – and when his samurai- and guru-inspired spring collection hits Dover Street Market exclusively next Wednesday, he’s sure to enlist a whole new legion of fans.

Emerging Accessory Designer: Prism
Former fashion editor and model Anna Laub set up her eyewear brand in 2009 and has since expanded to swimwear and espadrilles. Her 54 Chiltern Street store is pre-holiday stocking-up gem.

Red Carpet Designer: Alexander McQueen
Carey Mulligan was rolling round town in a breathtaking Sarah Burton creation for McQueen at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards on Sunday, and Naomie Harris wore a zingy McQueen suit last week – proof, if any was needed, that Burton has the red carpet monopoly down pat, even though she observed in her acceptance speech: “It’s quite ironic to win an award for something I’m personally so bad at”.

Model of the Year: Cara Delevingne
Cara was ice-skating her way around Austria with Kendall Jenner when news hit that she’d scooped the coveted Model of the Year prize – but it was in the service of Chanel, so we’d mentally excused her. On Monday afternoon, however, she posted a picture of herself next to a private plane with a caption entitled, ‘London!’ – and jetted into town to collect her award. Her sister Poppy joined her on the stage for an emotional tribute and Victoria’s Secret Angels Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls presented her with the award.

Special Recognition: Chris Moore
The octogenarian photographer has been snapping catwalks since 1967, and is widely known as one of the nicest people in fashion. Now into his ninth decade, he doesn’t let his age prevent him from doing the bi-annual rounds of catwalk shows.

Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator: Edward Enninful
Enninful was appointed fashion director of i-D magazine at the green age of 18, the youngest ever at a major international style title. He’s the man behind Vogue Italia’s best-selling July 2008 ‘All Black’ issue, which featured only black models, and the stylist who turned Kate Moss into a nun for the March 2012 edition of W Magazine , at which he is currently style director. A favourite catchphrase on photo shoots is: “I want her to look rich, rich, rich and chic, chic, chic.”

International Designer: Nicolas Ghesquière
Charlotte Gainsbourg presented the Frenchman with his award in honour of his stellar first year at the helm of Louis Vuitton. Her fashion moment for 2014? “Shooting the Vuitton campaign with Nicolas, of course,” she told us on the red carpet.

Special Recognition Award: Anna Wintour OBE
The most-feared woman in fashion has had another bumper year, during which the Metropolitan Museum of Art renamed its fashion halls The Anna Wintour Costume Center in her honour. She repaid the compliment mere hours later when she hosted her 16th Met Gala, which raised $12 million for the museum in one evening. John Galliano presented her with her award and paid tribute to her loyalty during what has been a tumultuous period for him personally. She took to the stage to urge people to use fashion as a medium to inspire and effect good in the world.

New Establishment: Simone Rocha
Rocha’s star has well and truly risen since she won the Emerging Womenswear Designer award last year. She singled out her parents John and Odette in her acceptance speech for what she said was a “pretty serious” award.

Brand of the Year: Victoria Beckham
Fresh from opening a stand-alone store on Dover Street, VB cruised into world domination mode, paying special tribute to her husband and family, and her particularly vocal VB team who gave her a standing ovation from the Coliseum’s balcony.

British Style Award: Emma Watson
Fashion anoints Feminism’s newest squeeze with the people’s choice award for most stylish. She in turn paid tribute to her stylist Sarah Slutsky.
Accessory Designer of the Year: Anya Hindmarch
She’s on your supermarket shelves in the form of Fashion Flakes (Frosties) and her leather stickers are adorning handbags all over London. Onwards, to America, for Anya Hindmarch.

Menswear Designer of the Year: J.W. Anderson
Anderson reports he’s much more relaxed since taking the reins of the Spanish brand Loewe: another award for his mantelpiece (accepted, with just a hint of awkwardness, from Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton) proves his new-found calm yields just as successful results.

Womenswear Designer of the Year: Erdem
The biggie, and the one that every single designer in the Coliseum wants to win. This year, Montreal-born, east London-based Erdem took the crown for his darkly feminine designs. In his acceptance speech he thanked his parents for supporting him, and his sister for letting him dress up her Barbies. “I was never going to be a hockey player…I make dresses. That’s what I do,” he said, to huge applause.
