Style, Glitz & Glamour at the 2nd Annual Fashions Finest Awards
It was an exhilarating and exciting night for everyone that attended the 2nd Annual Fashions Finest Awards which took place on the 10 November 2012 at the trendy Sarah Siddons Theatre, City of Westminster College.
Fashions Finest Awards is a prestigious awards ceremony that is truly appreciated by its recipients and recognised generally within the British fashion industry and internationally as a sign of true talent and professionalism.
Fashions Finest Awards celebrates, new, emerging and established designers, creatives and models that work within the diverse fashion industry and aims to acknowledge and recognise them for their talent.
Fashions Finest Awards has become the stand out, go to awards ceremony for the UK fashion industry and the stars were out in full force including, actor Will Johnson (Waking the Dead), Zainab Vandu-Chikola (winner of Rihanna’s hit TV series Styled To Rock), Nollywood Actress Fatima Jabbe and so many more came out to support the awards, nominees and eventual winners and everyone that attended was looking absolutely fashionistic.
The evening started with a red carpet and Sushi reception and a colourful exhibition by the various nominees with performances on the night by Beyond Creation and Maria Daniela Maracine and technology was used to its fullest with guests being encouraged to tweet throughout the awards and the tweets were read out during the awards by our beautiful hosts Holly Louise Thomas & Lola Royale. Fashions Finest Awards aims to give in more ways than one, so it was not only about the nominees and the winners but also about raising money for our chosen charity Heroes Children Fund and it was so good to see so many people giving to a worthy cause.
Fashions Finest Awards continues to grow from strength to strength, attracting worldwide publicity and recognition from the likes of Vogue Italia. The Fashions Finest Academy of Fashion & Creatives Arts has been established and for the 3rd Annual Fashions Finest Awards, it would be the academy members that will be voting on the nominees to be put forward as well as the eventual winners. All fashion designers and creatives are welcome to become members of the Academy of Fashion & Creatives Arts by applying directly to Fashions Finest.
Fashions Finest Awards continues to recognise deserving talent that fails to be recognised by mainstream fashion and it was truly a great honour to give the Special Recognition Award to Yemi Osunkoya of Kosibah, one of the foremost and talented designers in the world when it comes to couture bridal wear.
