Kate Moss To Be Honored At The British Fashion Awards


On December 02, 2013 Kate Moss will be honored with a special recognition award at the British Fashion awards.

Kate will receive the award in recognition of her twenty five year career as a model, as well as her status as a style icon for young women. This news came as a breath of fresh air and was welcomed with open arms by the fashion industry.

Photographer Mario Testino, a longtime collaborator with Moss, paid tribute to Kate and said that her appeal lies in the ability to add personality to fashion. Designer Donatella Versace stated that from the very onset of her career Kate was iconic; she never had to become a model.

Kate Moss is the model with the most influence over what women wear. Kate’s influence can be quantified as she sells magazines as Vogue’s most popular model, appearing on thirty four covers of British Vogue alone, and is consistently on the annual Forbes list of highest paid models. In 2013, she has modeled for brands from Stuart Weitzman to Rag & Bone, Versace and St Tropez. Forbes put her fourth on this year’s list, with an estimated income of £3.49m.

Moss has turned this mass appeal to her advantage, with projects outside modeling turning her into a brand. Her first go at designing for Topshop in 2007 saw fans queue overnight to buy the range. She is set to revisit the Topshop collaboration next year, and her first story as contributing fashion editor for British Vogue will also be published in 2014. Other recent projects include a range of makeup with Rimmel, bags with Longchamp and phone covers for Carphone Warehouse.

The model was first discovered in New York at the age of fourteen by Storm Models founder Sarah Doukas in 1988. Her look – which contrasted with the ideal of Amazonian beauty of the 1980s – broke the mould. A fresh-faced black-and-white shoot by Corinne Day for The Face magazine in 1990 went on to shape the grunge aesthetic of the decade, with a teenage Moss as its poster girl.

We would like to congratulate Kate Moss on her fabulous journey and would like to wish her all the best for her future.
