The WGSN winners

Global Fashion Awards take London

Burberry’s Christopher Bailey, Acne, Erdem and Nicholas Kirkwood were the high-fashion victors at last night’s WGSN Global Fashion Awards.

Held for the first time in the opulent surrounds of the V&A, the fourth annual event drew style stars including Emilia Fox, Annabelle Wallis, Susie Bubble and Laura Whitmore – show-stopping in a feather ‘cloud’ dress by Nicholas Oakwell Couture – as presenters, while Cat Deeley took on the role of compere.

Newly appointed Burberry Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer Bailey accepted his Hall Of Fame Award with a thank you video in which he put the onus firmly on his team.

But for ELLE, the big story of the night was the fashion love-in between Gwendoline Christie (aka ELLE’s ultimate girl crush) and Nicholas Kirkwood, with whom she awarded the Accessories & Footwear Designer trophy. Talk about a dream(y) team.
