Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele will take home the Trailblazer Award at the 2021 Fashion Awards, taking place on Monday evening. The designer – who has headed the Italian label for six years – will be recognized as a pioneer in the industry. He follows in the footsteps of Kim Jones and Sarah Burton, previous recipients of the award.

The Trailblazer Awards are one of the UK Fashion Council’s Special Recognition Awards – and celebrate the best creatives and innovators in the industry.

“Alessandro’s work at Gucci over the past year defines what it means to be a pioneer, he is a pioneer in every aspect of his creative output and uses the power of design to pave new avenues connecting the fashion industry to all other industries from film to digital innovation,” said the head. BFC executives about the designer.

“He was a tremendous source of inspiration for many generations to come and we look forward to celebrating with him next week in London.”

In just the last 12 months, Michele has created a lot of buzz, including executing an industry first, which saw Gucci “hack” Balenciaga as part of the label’s 100th anniversary collection, the Gucci Aria. Collection – which recently went on sale – undoubtedly one of the most talked about fashion moments of the year.

The BFC also notes a number of other projects that Michele has worked on this year, commenting on how closely his work aligns with the film industry, highlighting the critical position of fashion at the intersection of culture and art.

Michele will receive her award on stage at the Royal Albert Hall on Monday night, where she will join the biggest names in fashion, including American designer Tommy Hilfiger, who has won the Outstanding Achievement Award. This event will no doubt be an interesting one, marking a return to real life, after a year off due to the pandemic.

And, The Fashion Awards will not only return to its glamorous format, but will also expand to a more global scale. According to BFC, the 2021 event will celebrate the global impact of fashion and its role at the crossroads of culture.
