Hearst UK has today announced the return of the ELLE Style Awards with iconic jewellery brand Tiffany & Co. as headline partner. The event will take place on Tuesday 5th September 2023 at The Old Sessions House in Clerkenwell, London, coinciding with the beginning of Fashion Week events across the world.
Moët & Chandon, a supporter of the UK fashion industry since the 90’s, will also be joining the celebrations as the champagne celebration partner, while Snapchat has been announced as a technology partner, driving the awards into the future with an exclusive augmented reality experience.
As a leading media brand celebrated for bringing together established and emerging names within the creative industry, ELLE UK has marked a new editorial chapter under Editor-in-Chief, Kenya Hunt, and will bring back the landmark event in an updated guise to shine a light on the designers, models and talent. There will also be a series of collector’s edition magazine covers for the October issue, out early September.
With a view to creating opportunities for the next generation of image-makers, stylists and designers, the publication will also help increase pathways into the fashion world by offering year-long mentorships to an emerging fashion photographer, writer, designer and stylist, with the chance to contribute to the pages of the magazine, in collaboration with contributing editor and Central Saint Martins lecturer Berni Yates.
Kenya Hunt, Editor-in-Chief of ELLE UK, said: “The ELLE Style Awards are an iconic part of ELLE’s story. As we evolve our brand and propel it into the future, using our platform to help bring meaningful change in the industry, now feels like a fitting time to revive this powerful event and drive it forward. I am excited to have completely refreshed the awards as an innovative celebration of the next generation of British style.”
