Amber le Bon commented on her appointment as host:
"I'm so excited and honoured to be part of the UKFT Awards. It is a fantastic association who work tirelessly to promote the growth of and preserve home grown skills of the Fashion and Textiles Industry here in the UK. Such an exciting time to be part of an awards ceremony who recognises the best our industry has to offer PLUS I'll be co-hosting with the lovely Jack Guinness so it's sure to be a fun night."
"I am thrilled and honoured to be co-hosting the UKFT Awards with the beautiful Amber le Bon. Such a fantastic platform for emerging and established UK brands. British craft, industry and traditions can be forgotten, so it's vital we have an organisation such as UK Fashion & Textiles Association to fly the flag for our home grown talent. UK fashion and textiles are having a real moment, and I'm really excited to be part of a night dedicated to recognising this."
