The British Fashion Council
announced that The Fashion Awards 2017 in partnership with Swarovski is returning to iconic London venue The Royal Albert Hall, taking place on Monday 4th December.

An essential part of Swarovski’s mission is to nurture young designers and invest in the next generation of fashion talent. Our mission aligns brilliantly with the British Fashion Council and The Fashion Awards, as these awards are both a celebration of the best in global fashion, and a vital platform to raise funds for the BFC’s Education Foundation. Young designers are the heartbeat of our business, and it’s up to all of us to foster and champion their visions to keep our industry thriving. – Nadja Swarovski, Member of the Swarovski Executive Board

Last year we set the goal of raising £10million in 10 years to educate talented young people. The resounding success of last year’s Awards, as a spectacular gala to honour so many incredible individuals and also as a fundraiser, reinforces that this is a target that the industry supports. Swarovski and the BFC share the goal to promote, support and educate talent. We thank Swarovski for their generosity in supporting The Fashion Awards and our Education Foundation and look forward to welcoming the fashion industry on December 4th in London. – Dame Natalie Massenet, Chairman British Fashion Council
