Fashion Illustrations – British Fashion Awards 2014

I have an explicit obsession and love for British fashion and London as a fashion capital. My graduate design collection is inspired from cultural changes post British invasion in India. I have also written about some of my favourite iconic landmarks in British fashion, the article also compares the style of few British fashion designers with Indian counterparts. My biggest fashion idol, Lee Alexander McQueen belonged to London. The legendary John Galliano is British. Godmother of fashion industry, Anna Wintour is British born. Kate Moss. Iconic Vivienne Westwood. Needless to say more, London has deeply influenced my fashion sensibilities.

The 2014 edition of British Fashion Awards was recently concluded in London, recognizing both emerging and established talents of British fashion industry. The BFA red carpet boasted plenty of glam, sass and style. Here are some illustrations of my favourite red carpet looks from 2014 British Fashion Awards.

I had a brief celebration within my head to see a John Galliano creation after some three odd years. Anna Wintour who was awarded for outstanding achievement in fashion, wore the first John Galliano creation for Maison Martin Margiela.

Cara Delevigne who won model of the year (an accolade she won earlier in 2012) wore a Burberry gown designed by Christopher Bailey.
Emma Watson effortlessly pulled off an anti-fit look in a wide-legged Misha Nonoo jumpsuit teamed with a lose fitted Dior blazer with little touches like rolled up sleeve and hair gently let loose to one side. No surprise, she won the Style Icon of the Year award.


Pink is not meant for men? The One Direction star disagrees. Harry Styles looked dapper in a black-pink striped Lanvin suit at 2014 British Fashion Awards.
Rising fashion star Kendall Jenner wore a minimal strapless white Emilio Pucci jumpsuit featuring black side panel detail. Sheer shoes, clutch and bold red lips added bold details to her minimal outlook.
American socialite Olivia Palermo looked sleek and chic in a pegged canary yellow slit dress with black lace bodice.
Pants? No thanks. Rihanna has been making ‘almost-naked’ red carpet appearances post her Instagram controversy. The pop star wore an over-sized Stella McCartney blazer with accessories and minimal makeup.
Victoria Beckham has come along a long and dedicated journey to win British Brand of the Year award at 2014 British Fashion Awards. The model turned fashion designer wore a black sweater paired with white pleated skirt from her own eponymous label.
