Despite big-name winners and a rather illustrious judging panel comprising Hilary Alexander, Naomi Isted and Harold Tillman to name but a few, The Haus of Fashion Worked is somewhat an anomaly in the sartorial industry, adopting a light-hearted, jovial, sometimes outright hilarious approach to fashion journalism. The digital platform, which in the words of its founder Ross Pollard represents ‘a passion for the little people in fashion’, promotes alternative, independent brands, designers and retailers.

The evening was itself relaxed, amusing and intimate – a reflection of the FashionWorked ethos – and took part on the inconspicuous roof terrace of London’s Century Club.
