Sir Paul Smith will receive the Outstanding Achievement Award at this year’s British Fashion Awards on Monday 28th November. This special award celebrates the achievement of a designer whose work has had an exceptional impact on global fashion.
The British Fashion Awards 2011 will take place at the Savoy Hotel and Theatre, recognising the most influential people in fashion today and celebrating the reputation and development of British fashion.
The nominees were announced in September, including Designer Brand, Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator and three Emerging Talent Awards recognising and supporting the young design talent whose creativity drives forward the British fashion industry. New awards for this year include the Emerging Talent Award – Menswear which will be awarded to an innovative and directional designer who is emerging as an influential force in British menswear ready-to-wear design; and the re-introduction of the Red Carpet award, which gives recognition to a British designer who is creating global awareness of their designs in the media.
