The British Fashion Council announced the 20 Honourees of The Fashion Awards 2020 in an entirely new format, both in terms of a digital film premiere and through recognising the people and organisations who led change in the fashion industry in 2020.
20 individuals and brands were recognised in honour of their specific contribution to one of four categories: Community, Creativity, Environment and People. 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. The BFC continues its collaboration with the United Nations Office for Partnerships (UNOP) to further engage the fashion industry in the Decade of Action to Deliver the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The BFC has worked with the Conscious Fashion Campaign to assign the SDG which aligns best to explanation of why they have been honoured for leading positive change at The Fashion Awards 2020.
