The Fashion Awards was be hosted by Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award-winning, and Golden Globe-nominated actor, singer, director, composer, and playwright Billy Porter. With more than 30 years in the business, Porter has become one of the most recognisable entertainers in the industry. Whether gracing the red carpet in couture masterpieces, giving iconic performances on Broadway, or speaking up for the black LGBTQ+ community, Porter is a style icon who uses fashion as a means of self-expression and communication.

Brit Award winning British singer/songwriter Griff performed live from the red carpet. Griff’s performance launched the first ever Red-Carpet LIVESTREAM on the official @TheFashionAwards TikTok account to eager viewers from around the world. 2021 has been a breakthrough year for the young artist and self-taught producer.
