As well as recognizing designers and industry leaders, The Fashion Awards celebrated raw creativity by hosting the Central Saint Martins, The White Show as part of this year’s ceremony. Each year the new intake of BA Fashion students is asked to create a design presented in white.

This extraordinary collection is usually presented as an internal show. This year, for the first time, The White Show was brought to the Royal Albert Hall, recognizing and celebrating the first creative steps of the next generation of fashion talent from all over the world, brought together in fashion’s creative capital, London.

The BFC also sponsored The White Show by enabling the college to provide the students with sustainably sourced white fabrics to realize their vision. Little Simz opened the show and performed two tracks, Venom and Jealous, with The White Show.

In celebration of Mr. Giorgio Armani’s Outstanding Achievement award, Mr. Armani presented an Armani Privé couture catwalk show to the guests as a gift to The Fashion Awards 2019 and invited long-time collaborator and music icon Eric Clapton to play the evening out.
