Attended by the most respected names in fashion, the ACF awards gala honoured key individuals across a range of disciplines and professions who have made a profound impact on the fashion industry, particularly in Asia. Fifteen awards were presented, including the Lifetime Achievement Award to ACF Honorary President, Mr. Kenzo Takada.

“Around the world, leading fashion federations such as La Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, the Council of Fashion Designers of America and the British Fashion Council have made it a point to consistently recognise the best talents in their markets. To date, this simply hasn’t happened in Asia,” said Dr. Frank Cintamani, ACF Founding President.

“As part of its remit, the ACF has sought to recognise and promote the very best couture talent in the region. However, our goal of raising the wider awareness of the creativity and ability that exists in Asia cannot be achieved without the support and partnership of a number of individuals and businesses that also strive for excellence within their respective fields of expertise.
