Last night saw fashion’s finest descend on the beautiful Coliseum in Covent Garden for the highlight of the British fashion calendar – the British Fashion Awards. The likes of Anna Wintour, Lady Gaga, Karl Lagerfeld and Karlie Kloss were in attendance alongside the Brit fash pack to celebrate the best of British fashion. Highlights of the night included noneotherthan Patsy and Edina (of Ab Fab) presenting Stella McCartney with Brand of the Year, the wonderful J.W. Anderson winning both Menswear and Womenswear Designer of the Year and a fashion showcase midway through the ceremony.
