Known for his work as the creative director of the Italian luxury brand, Valentino, Pierpaolo Piccioli won designer of the year at the 2022 Fashion Awards on Monday night. This marks the second time Piccioli has received the award-the other time being in 2018. Florence Pugh presented him the award, wearing a red, backless Valentino dress, one of many Valentino pieces she is known for wearing.

Piccioli says, “To me fashion has a responsibility, I feel (I) have a voice and I want to use my voice even for who doesn’t have a voice.”
