From established designers to new faces, Britain’s fashion industry awards will be announced at the Royal Albert Hall on 4 December
The nominations for Britain’s Fashion awards, which underwent an international makeover last year, have been announced. Model and Gurls Talk activist Adwoa Aboah is among the favourites to win model of the year – her honesty on mental health issues make her an apt poster girl given fashion’s current celebration of outspokenness.
She is nominated alongside the 16-year-old daughter of 90s supermodel Cindy Crawford, Kaia Gerber, who was spring/summer 2018’s breakout catwalk star, opening shows for Chanel, Alexander Wang and Fendi and walking in too many others to count. The Canadian model Winnie Harlow, an Ashish muse and former America’s Next Top Model contestant who suffers from vitiligo is also nominated, as are model sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid.
