Despite being the new player in the fashion industry, Daniel Lee has been reckoned as a success as he scooped four awards, including Designer of the Year, British Designer of the Year – Womenswear, British Designer of the Year – Accessories and Brand of the Year for Bottega Veneta, at the British Fashion Awards 2019.
Since debuting his first runway show, Bottega Veneta’s Autumn/Winter 2019 collection, back in February this year, Lee’s craft have been a topic of the fashion conversation. As time rolled on, his calling cards the likes of The Pouch bag and square-toed Stretch Sandals caught on fast and were voted the most wanted product of the year and the most wanted shoes of the year respectively by Lyst.
On the other hand, Kim Jones, who has breathed new life into Dior Men by rejuvenating the fashion house’s archives and collaborating with contemporary artists like Yoon Ahn, Daniel Arsham and Hajime Sorayama, was awarded the British Designer of the Year, Menswear. He was the first recipient of the Trailblazer Award last year.
