We are delighted to announce that curator, creative director and co-founder of Dazed Media, Jefferson Hack, will receive a Special Recognition Award for Cultural Curation at The Fashion Awards 2022, taking place on Monday 5th December at the Royal Albert Hall, London. Hack will be awarded for empowering youth through creativity and for creating countless opportunities for next generation creatives working across fashion, design, art, music and more, providing a platform and supporting emerging talent.

The Special Recognition Award for Cultural Curation is one of the Special Recognition Awards that celebrate outstanding contributions to the fashion industry. As the co-founder of Dazed Media, with a portfolio that includes some of the world’s most influential media brands including AnOther Magazine, Dazed, Dazed Beauty and NOWNESS as well as Dazed Studio, Hack is directly responsible not only for curating culture but building bigger futures for so many people he crosses paths with. Over the past three decades, his platform has had an immense impact on culture as we know it, highlighting non-stereotypical topics around gender, race and identity and exploring the boundaries of art, fashion, photography, music and performance.

Caroline Rush, CEO British Fashion Council commented: “We are thrilled to be honoring Jefferson Hack with the Special Recognition Award for Cultural Curation. Hack is being awarded for his incredible contribution to culture, art, and fashion as well as his limitless energy and time for growing and investing in people. Over the past three decades, his commitment to empowering youth through creativity has defined the zeitgeist and shaped the future, making him one of the most exciting creative voices of a generation. We look forward to celebrating with him in London in December.”

The Fashion Awards 2022 will take place on Monday 5th December 2022, returning to the iconic London venue The Royal Albert Hall. The event, one of the most anticipated moments of the global fashion calendar, celebrates fashion at the intersection of culture and is a global entertainment platform for brands, creatives, designers, artists and tastemakers who come together to celebrate the industry.

The Fashion Awards is the main fundraiser for the BFC Foundation, the charity that brings all the BFC’s initiatives under one umbrella, supporting the future growth and success of the British fashion industry by focusing on education, grant-giving and business mentoring.
