Global fashion legend, Claudia Schiffer has been chosen to receive the 2017 Bambi Award for Fashion, celebrating her 30-year extraordinary contribution to the industry.

Spanning a career over three decades and gracing the covers of over 1,000 magazines worldwide Claudia has amassed a network of creative collaborators which includes the industry’s top photographers, designers, editors and make-up artists – and has channelled all she has learned in her work with them in to a new phase of creativity; launching a global brand in her name spanning many categories.

“It’s such an honour to be recognised for my achievements in fashion and beauty – especially in my home country. The Bambi Awards are an international institution, and being named alongside stars in their fields, like Wladimir Klitchsko and Ai Weiwei, is such a privilege. I’ve been fortunate to work with some of the most brilliant creative talents of our generation, from designers including Karl Lagerfeld and Gianni Versace to photographers such as Herb Ritts and Richard Avedon – and I’m still surprised and delighted by the opportunities that fashion brings my way each day. I’m thankful for the support I’ve received over the past three decades and beyond, and am excited about the next chapter,” Claudia Schiffer.

The BAMBI Awards will be held November 16th in Berlin, witnessed by the cream of the fashion and entertainment industries. The annual Bambi Awards recognise excellence in media, arts, culture, sports; celebrating visionary creatives who have inspired us all over the past 12 months.
