Running since 1989, the British Fashion Awards is an annual event held at the United Kingdom to showcase both British and international individuals and businesses who have done exceptionally well in terms of contributing to the fashion industry during the year. 

At the awards, Akech was one of the best dressed nominees. She donned a Maison Valentino green dress with a high slit and dramatic bow, completing the look with her signature bald hairdo.
