He talked about Christopher Kane being the winner of the Fashion Fund prize before welcoming the new BFC ambassador to the stage; Samantha Cameron.
Samantha gave a speech about her passion for fashion and how she would strive to help the industry grow as well as celebrate all the amazing homegrown talent that we have. She wore a Mulberry LBD for the occasion with a black blazer.
