Last night's glittering British Fashion Awards at London's Coliseum was a celebration of the depth and breadth of our talent, with winners going from global mega-brand Victoria Beckham to avant-garde menswear designer Craig Green. Red carpet talent included Rihanna, John Galliano and Harry Styles and the main Designer of the Year awards went to Erdem for Womenswear (the night's most coveted category) and JW Anderson for Menswear.

Of the biggest brands, Louis Vuitton's womenswear designer Nicolas Ghesquiere was elected International Designer for the exciting new direction he's taken the brand since Marc Jacobs's reign ended. And Victoria Beckham, who opened her first stand-alone store in London on Dover Street recently, took home Brand of the Year.

Cara private jetted it in from Austria for a sneaky pre-Chanel show to celebrate her Model of the Year award (with new gal pal Kendall Jenner in tow) and the UK's biggest fashion export and champion, Vogue's Anna Wintour, flying in from New York to pick up the Outstanding Achievement Award whilst's Chris Moore picked up the Special Recognition Award. Another magazine superstar, W's Edward Enninful (and former i-D Fashion Director), took home Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator for his work as a stylist.
