David Adjaye designs crystal trophy for The Fashion Awards 2018

David Adjaye has designed a faceted trophy made from Swarovski crystal for the winners of this year's Fashion Awards. The British Fashion Council and event sponsor Swarovski commissioned the Ghanaian-British architect to create the bespoke trophy for the UK's annual Fashion Awards, taking place in London on 10 December. Intended to "create beautiful and unexpected refractions", his design features a six-sided column with triangular facets that taper upwards. Handcrafted from crystal by Swarovski craftsmen at the company's headquarters in Wattens, Austria, each trophy is relatively light, weighing approximately 1.4 kilograms (an Oscar is approximately 3.8 kilograms). Adjaye said he hopes his Fashion Awards will "bring a certain magic and add to the celebrations on the night".
