The British Fashion Council (BFC) announced the 20 Honourees of The Fashion Awards 2020, which takes on an entirely new format, both in terms of a digital film premiere and through recognizing the people and organizations who led change in the fashion industry in 2020. From those who bravely faced this challenging year with pro-active responses to the global pandemic, showed leadership and creative resilience over the past year, to the ones who stood up against prejudice within the fashion industry and fight for change.

The Honourees were revealed in the Fashion Awards 30-minutes film that documents the year in fashion and brings together a selection of next-generation opinion leaders and creatives to share their personal perspective of the impact of 2020 and the stand out moments of change. 20 individuals and brands were recognized in honor of their specific contribution to one of four categories: Community, Creativity, Environment, and People. Take a look below:

Over 800 key members of the international fashion industry, spanning 28 countries, were called upon to nominate who they thought should receive an accolade. The list was then run through a matrix to decide the final 20 Honourees based on their exceptional contribution, meeting the set-out criteria, and number of nominations received.
