Lagerfeld to receive Outstanding Achievement Award from BFC
For his "unrivalled contribution to the fashion industry," Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld will be given the Outstanding Achievement Award at the British Fashion Awards on November 23.
Though he has helmed a number of iconic fashion houses, including Fendi and Chloé, and has his own brand, its for his work at Chanel that Lagerfeld is best known. Lagerfeld has also had careers as a photographer, publisher and art director, as well as that of a designer. He has been at Chanel for over thirty years and the house continues to push boundaries in fashion.
Natalie Massenet MBE commented: “Karl Lagerfeld defines outstanding. He is the champion of excellence, the master of the exceptional and one of the most iconic figures globally from our industry. His life's work for his own and so many extraordinary brands has written the language of fashion. He is the ultimate visionary and we celebrate not only the decades already passed but those yet to happen. In Karl's hands the future of fashion will be an exceptional one.”
Lagerfeld will be given the award at the London Coliseum on November 23. Former winners include Anna Wintour OBE (2014), Terry and Tricia Jones (2013), and Manolo Blahnik CBE (2012).
