The event will return on Nov. 29, the British Fashion Council (BFC) announced on Thursday. The Fashion Awards will take place at the Royal Albert Hall in London and will be held in accordance with the UK government guidelines at the time, the BFC said. Winners will be determined by a panel of over 800 members, with the voting period beginning in September.
The annual awards ceremony took place digitally last year due to restrictions on large-scale events and travel.
The Fashion Awards will continue to celebrate industry leaders for their work during the pandemic, honouring the “Leaders of Change,” which will include designers, creatives and individuals who created positive change over the past year, under five categories: the environment, people, community and craftsmanship, creativity and a new category, culture. Raf Simons and Muiccia Prada were among the 20 industry stars recognised in 2020.
The return of the awards is the latest in-person fashion event to be announced. The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) also recently announced the return of the CFDA Fashion Awards in November and released the preliminary schedule with its partner IMG for New York Fashion Week in September.
The event, normally held in early summer, will return on November 10, the Council of Fashion Designers of America said.
