British Fashion Awards 2014

British Fashion Awards - Winners Room

The British Fashion Awards are a big goddamn deal. My panic stricken getting-ready-for-them session coincided with running into my father who didn’t hesitate to mock me a LOT about my level of hysteria over whether my arrived-five-minutes-previously dress was too summery and if doing winter leg would make it look approps, or just give me hypothermia.
