Next Monday night sees the Fashion Awards, that Swarovski-sponsored end-of-year shindig at which London (and visiting) industry figures let their hair down while raising money for education charities. Masterminded by Dame Natalie Massenet of the British Fashion Council, the event’s organizers work to generate some preemptive “sizzle”—as Massenet calls it—by announcing the winners of certain categories in advance.
