Fashion Awards trophies created from coloured glass rods

A collaboration with The Glass Foundry in the Cotswolds has resulted in trophies made from glass rods for the Fashion Awards 2022.

British-Nigerian designer Yinka Ilori designed the awards, working with environmentally friendly jeweller Skydiamond and The Glass Foundry, which created the trophies. The partnership was arranged by the British Fashion Council.

Yinka Ilori’s first solo exhibition opened at London’s Design Museum earlier in 2022, with work featuring vibrant colours and bold patterns. The trophies have a nine-by-nine configuration and remain faithful to his design vision, celebrating bright colours.

He explained that he wanted the trophies to be symbolic of the collaborative nature of fashion, with each rod representing the many creative roles within the fashion industry.
