The Business of Fashion has just named the Person of the Year and you’ll never guess who it is…

It's official! The Business of Fashion has just revealed Demna Gvasalia as Person of the Year. Before his recent International Ready-to-Wear Designer award win at the British Fashion Awards earlier this month, Gvasalia took over the reigns at Balenciaga and quickly became of one of the most renowned personalities in the fashion industry. The Creative Director of Balenciaga stayed true to his artistic vision – think his first ad campaign for the brand – and went on to make one of the biggest creative moves this year when he collaborated with 18 other brands for the Vetement's Fall/Winter '16 runway show at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week.

A special issue of the Business of Fashion is set be released in February '17 with Gvasalia fronting the cover. In the meantime, discover his first full campaign with Balenciaga
