Anna Wintour to Receive Outstanding Achievement Award

News of this year’s British Fashion Awards nominees broke last month, with J.W. Anderson and Simone Rocha among those getting the nod. Today, the British Fashion Council has announced a surprise corollary to the evening: fashion’s most famous British expat, Anna Wintour, will be presented with the Outstanding Achievement Award. Said BFC chair Natalie Massenet in a release, “Anna Wintour has helped, nurtured and advised the careers of some of the world’s most brilliant and creative designers. There isn’t a person working in fashion who has not been inspired and influenced by Anna’s leadership.” The ceremony will take place December 1 at the London Coliseum, so prepare your quiver of seasonally appropriate “Wintour Wonderland” quips.
