The British Fashion Council has announced that Karl Lagerfeld will be honoured with the Outstanding Achievement Award at the 2015 British Fashion Awards, taking place on 23 November. The designer will be honoured at the ceremony for his unrivalled contribution to the fashion industry, whereby for over fifty years he has taken the helm of numerous iconic houses, including Chloé and Fendi. It is his work at CHANEL for which he is most recognised. A tenure of over thirty years has seen Karl’s unique vision transform the classic French house into a global superbrand. A vision that extends beyond the atelier, Karl's influence has helped launch numerous supermodel careers, has redefined fashion advertising and laid down the blueprint of how to revive a fashion brand.
