Kim Jones has had an interesting few years. After taking the helm at Dunhill for a short period, the designer landed recently at Louis Vuitton and has clearly made waves that the industry is taking note of. Last night in London, Kim Jones walked home with as “Best Menswear” designer at the British Fashion Awards. His Spring/Summer 2012 collection for Vuitton, which debuted in Paris had everyone talking. The accolade handed at at The Savoy in London will put a smile on many.
Other notable winners from the British Fashion Awards 2011 include Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen as “Designer of the Year.” Paul Smith also took home an award for “BFC Outstanding Achievement in Fashion.” Congratulations to all the winners.
