This year’s FNAA Designer of the Year is a name you probably already know because it seems as though every celebrity wears her shoes: Tabitha Simmons.
The designer was born and raised in England and began her fashion career as a model. But she transitioned into the design side of the industry when she launched her first collection in 2009 and was awarded her first award from FN for Launch of the Year.
And in the nine years since, she’s racked up an impressive fan base.

Another loyal follower is Gigi Hadid, who has worn countless Tabitha Simmons styles, including leopard-print boots and heavy-duty lace-up hikers.
And Simmons’ fan base extends to the royals, too. During Meghan Markle’s first royal tour, the duchess wore the Tabitha Simmons Millie slingbacks a grand total of three times.
