The winners were announced at a ceremony at Evolution, London on Friday 17 November. Stay tuned for the upcoming event gallery and video.

Celebrating la dolce vita, our annual 'black tie with a twist' was 'Bellissimo Black Tie', inspired by Italian fashion, design and music - with a nod to the second series of the HBO cult hit ‘The White Lotus’, set on a fictional luxury Sicilian resort. As always, the dress code is open to interpretation and the twist is completely optional; get colourful with Gucci florals and Pucci patterns or keep it classic in timeless black tie. Whether you blow the budget on designer attire from Italy's biggest fashion houses or your selections are a little more sartorial, think 'A Night at The Opera', Venetian masquerade balls or the decadent rooftop club scene from Paolo Sorrentino’s ‘The Great Beauty’. Check out the ceremony's official Pinterest for outfit ideas and playlist for an eclectic mix of opera and Italo-disco!
