British Fashion Awards: John Galliano begins his rehabilitation with a little help from Anna Wintour

Designer returns to the fashion fraternity for the first time since 2011

The British Fashion Awards are an annual backslapping event where UK fashion lauds and applauds the industry members who made the greatest impact over the previous 12 months.

Sometimes it’s about crowning new talent, or perhaps awarding those long overlooked. Occasionally, it’s about someone whom everyone seems to like getting an award, so you don’t just give it to the same person year after year - that old, oddly British sense of sportsmanship at the expense of re-awarding the really worthy.

But it’s very rare that the British Fashion Awards act as a form of public rehabilitation, or perhaps nods towards greatness yet to come. That was the sense tonight, when the 2014 British Fashion Awards were the stage for the first public appearance and speech by John Galliano amongst the fashion fraternity since his departure from Dior in 2011, and before his first show for Maison Martin Margiela in January. 

Galliano, however, wasn’t a main attraction; he was presenting rather than receiving an award, bestowing the BFC Outstanding Achievement on American Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour.
