The Oscars of fashion, the Olympics of style (AKA the Fashion Awards) are returning to the Royal Albert Hall on November 29, presented by TikTok. Technically a fundraiser for the British Fashion Council, the ceremony honours the industry’s vanguard while celebrating its most legendary figureheads – think Naomi Campbell, Demna Gvasalia, Richard Quinn, and Adut Akech. This year, Billy Porter, who wore an umbrella hat to the American Music Awards, has been tapped as host, resurrecting his role as ballroom compere, Praytell, for one night only.
Where individual seats usually go for hundreds of pounds, as part of a Dazed collaboration with The Fashion Awards, we’re offering one reader the chance to win two tickets, plus wristbands to the afterparty. Lucky entrants will join Tommy Hilfiger and Dazed editor IB Kamara – both of whom have already been announced as winners of the Outstanding Achievement and Isabella Blow prize, respectively – alongside a phalanx of fashion cognoscenti, iPad-toting PRs, and industry glitterati. Other attendees include Priya Ahluwalia, Bianca Saunders, Nensi Dojaka, and Bethany Williams, who are all nominated for emerging designer talent, while Kim Jones, Daniel Lee, Demna Gvasalia, Jonathan Anderson, Miuccia Prada, and Raf Simons are competing for the designer of the year accolade.
For all of this year’s behind the scenes goss, follow Dazed on TikTok here. Otherwise, the deadline to enter is Friday November 26 – fill out the form below to be in with a chance.
