Frida Giannini was named Fashion Designer of the Year at last night’s Glamour Women of the Year Awards.
The Italian fashion house’s creative director won the accolade at the ceremony at London’s Berkeley Square Gardens, where some of the world’s most glamorous women were in attendance.
Kylie Minogue stole the show by winning Entrepreneur of the Year and Woman of the Year and looked stunning in a black simple dress and animal print pashmina.
Samantha Cameron – wife of British Conservative party leader David Cameron – was named Accessory Designer of the Year and attended the event with her husband.
Newcomer of the Year Katy Perry dazzled in a satin strapless blue dress while Amanda Seyfried – who was named Film Actress of the Year – looked pretty in a loud-print dress.
This is not the first award Frida was won recently.
Earlier this week, she was named International Designer of the Year by Japan’s Fashion Editor´s Club every year.
It is the first time the prestigious award has gone to a woman. It coincided with Frida’s current Asian tour, where she is promoting the brand in countries including Japan and Korea, and visiting a new Gucci store in China.
