As promised, this post would be about the concluded British Fashion Awards (BFS) I attended last week. It was held at the London Coliseum. I went with my fashion sibling, Lanre and we queued outside for about 45 minutes before one of the officials randomly looked at our tickets and said we weren’t even supposed to be on the line. UGH!!! Imagine..
At least we got around to getting some decent photos anyway. So yes guys, that how I missed my opportunity with red carpet pictures with the likes of Rihanna and Naomi Campbell. LOL!
Stole some quick shots on our way inside..
We eventually got in, we had lovely goody bags on our seats, the VIPs had finished with their dinner and the show started some 20 minutes later.
The goody bag and my 3D purse..
Lol, fast forward to when I got home.. the contents on the goody-bag..
The event was very well organised and timed with Edward Enninful clutching the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator. Naomi presented this award to him and I was so engrossed listening to what she was saying to & about him that I didn’t recognise the person standing by her until Edward called their names while taking them and said “Rihanna”.
She looked so dope in this blazer dress Lanre was already coveting.
My favourite winner of the night was Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton.. Dude clutched two awards that night; International Designer and Creative Campaign.
Erdem was also a fav of mine.. his speech was proper sweet.
Before I go on ranting, let me share the list of the night’s winners..
