Presented by the British Fashion Council alongside TikTok, and hosted by Billy Porter, (hello, outfit!) the night featured lots of awards. Designer of the Year went to Kim Jones for Dior Men and Fendi while the BFC Foundation Award for emerging talent went to Nensi Dojaka, who also won the LVMH Prize for emerging talent in Septemeber.
