Earlier in the year, 1500 key members of the fashion industry were invited to put forward their preferences for each category. The voting body represents 41 countries across media, retail, communications and creative disciplines such as photography, art direction, set design and production.

Nominations were made in nine categories with the five brands/individuals receiving the most nominations shortlisted in each category. 

The winners will be announced at a gala ceremony held at the iconic Royal Albert Hall, London in front of 4000 people on Monday 5th December. The Fashion Awards 2016 in partnership with Swarovski will be the first awards to celebrate the international industry, from business to creativity, from emerging talent to fashion icons. The Fashion Awards 2016 will act as the inaugural annual fundraiser gala for the BFC Education Foundation charity, supporting talent of the future. The Education Foundation offers scholarships to talented young people to study at the best universities as well as opportunities to fund apprenticeships to develop much needed industry skills.
