After seeing informal award versions on its by-invitation-only forum of over 70,000 fashion influencer members, tFS decided to make it official by creating 11 fashion industry awards along with two awards honoring diversity and ethics in fashion.
Below is a partial list of winners along with quotes from a few winners.
Honorary Award for Ethical Fashion – Organic by John Patrick- John Patrick- “We are so loving this! The award means a tremendous amount to us. I have a strict dogma of attraction rather than promotion. And it’s so satisfying when an organization such as yours gives us an accolade like this, because I feel that it’s very sincere. It’s really transparent, there’s no way for anyone to try to influence the results. For us, it was a complete surprise. And at the end of the day, in an industry that has its ups and downs, an award like this is very meaningful. And we’re all very thankful.”
Best Magazine Cover – Vogue Italia March 2013: Vanessa Axente & Gustav Swedberg-Franca Sozzani, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Italia- “Thank you so much for the award of which I am very honored and happy. The March cover story, by Steven Meisel, was focused on the concept of Rewind, meaning the continuous cycles in fashion and its going backward to the Sixties. Vanessa Axente and Gustav Swedberg were portrayed in a black-and-white and minimal garments focusing on the eccentricity of the fashion of those years and its continuous changing of emotions.”
Top Male Model – Marlon Teixeira- “I am grateful for everything that is happening in my life today. This is a total honor. Thank you to theFashionSpot and all of its readers.”
