On Monday, December 5, Valentino designer Pierpaolo Piccioli and model Bella Hadid were among the winners at the London Fashion Awards.
At the annual ceremony, Piccioli, the creative director of the Italian luxury brand, was chosen designer of the year. Hadid, a frequent face on the catwalks of Milan, Paris, London, and New York, was named model of the year.
“Fashion has a responsibility to me, I believe I have a voice, and I want to use it for others who do not,” Piccioli told Reuters on the red carpet prior to the awards.
Yvon Chouinard, the founder of the clothing brand Patagonia, got the award for excellent achievement. In September, Chouinard announced that he would be donating the garment company to a trust that would utilize its profits to combat the climate catastrophe.
The British fashion house Burberry earned the metaverse world and gaming experience award for its virtual world endeavors.
