Kate Moss honoured at 2013 British Fashion Awards

The British Fashion Council has announced that Kate Moss will receive a Special Recognition Award at this year’s British Fashion Awards for her 25-year modelling career and continued influence on the fashion industry.

Moss’s career began in 1988 when she was discovered in New York by Sarah Doukas, founder of Storm Model Management. Since then, she has worked with numerous designers and brands, including Chanel, Dior, John Galliano, Longchamp, Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, Saint Laurent and Topshop. She was awarded model of the year at the 2006 British Fashion Awards and in 2009 became the first individual to receive a British Fashion Award decided entirely by public vote.

Moss will receive her honour on Monday 2 December 2013 at the British Fashion Awards ceremony in the London Coliseum.
