The British Fashion Council announced that Bruce Weber will receive the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator at The Fashion Awards 2016 in partnership with Swarovski. At this year’s ceremony on Monday 5th December at the Royal Albert Hall, Bruce Weber will be honoured for his incredible creative achievements within the global fashion industry.
Bruce Weber’s notable photography initially graced the pages of GQ Magazine in the 1970’s, and he soon rose to conspicuousness with the Calvin Klein campaign featuring Tom Hintnaus in Greece. Weber’s signature stripped-back black and white photography captured the spirit of the moment, and he has continued as a standout amongst the most notable and commended photographers of his age. Weber’s work on campaigns for Pirelli, Ralph Lauren and Versace and for magazines, such as, Elle, Interview, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair and numerous Vogues has brought about the absolute most innovative and iconoclastic fashion imagery to date.
