Fashions Finest Awards found their recipients on Friday 22nd July in a lavish ceremony at the prestigious Gibson Hall in the City of London. While sadly your in-house photography duo Suby & Sinem lost out in the Photographer of the Year Category to the very worthy winner Joseph Sinclair, we were delighted to see many of the creatives we have had the pleasure to feature in FAB over the last 17 months were rewarded on the night, including Joseph, designers Samantha Cole, Bunmi Koko, Anitah Quansah, model Rachael Williams.
Fashions Finest aims to redress the imbalance in the fashion industry which sees many a new emerging and even established designers, creatives and models are still not recognised for their hard work and creativity simply because they were not a brand name or mixing in the right circles. The organisers hope that recognising such undiscovered and unrecognised talent will open more doors to even more diversity.
