WEBER’S WIN: The British Fashion Council will honor Bruce Weber with the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator at The Fashion Awards, formerly known as the British Fashion Awards, next month in London.
Weber, known for his black-and-white images, will receive the prize for his work as a fashion photographer. “He is one of the foremost photographers and creative talents of our age who has helped shape the fashion industry we know today,” said Natalie Massenet, chairman of the British Fashion Council.
Named for the late British editor, the award honors a British stylist, makeup artist, photographer, art director or producer. The annual event will take place on Dec. 5 for the first time at The Royal Albert Hall.
Weber made his name shooting for GQ in the Seventies, and for his Calvin Klein campaigns. He has also worked with brands including Pirelli, Ralph Lauren and Versace, and his imagery has been featured in Elle, Interview, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair and Vogue.
Weber’s work has crossed over into documentaries including “Chop Suey,” “Let’s Get Lost” and “Broken Noses.” He has published more than 37 books and held more than 60 exhibitions.
Previous winners of the Isabella Blow Award include Nick Knight, Edward Enninful, Amanda Harlech and Louise Wilson.
