Stella McCartney Will Be Honored at the 2017 Fashion Awards
The designer will be receiving the Special Recognition award.
The annual Fashion Awards in partnership with Swarovski is taking place on December 4, and this year Stella McCartney will be awarded a brand-new Special Recognition Award for Innovation. She will be honored for her innovative techniques and her efforts in raising awareness of environmental issues, from never using any leather, fur, skins or feathers in her designs to her deep commitment to ethical values.
McCartney will be receiving the award to celebrate her success and influence with her eponymous label at the Fashion Awards in partnership with Swarovski. The event recognises individuals and creatives who have broken new grounds in fashion globally over the span of the past 12 months, as well as brands and businesses that have transformed fashion as we know it. The designer said, “I’m incredibly proud to get this award. What I am most proud of is that it is a new award that is introduced into the Fashion Awards, a special recognition on innovation. I am hoping that as being the first recipient, I can inspire other design houses to follow suit and to make this the most prestigious award, not just a one off.”
The ceremony will be taking place at the Royal Albert Hall in London on December 4. Stay tuned for more updates and information from the Fashion Awards, and make sure to check out the nominees here.
