"As a schoolboy my dream car was the V-12 E-Type Jag, which was, and still is
so incredibly beautiful. Indeed Enzo Ferrari called it the world's most
beautiful car," said Christopher Guy Harrison. "What a privilege then it is
for me to be honouring Ian Callum with the Christopher Guy/Britweek 2013
Design Icon Award, for his outstanding work as chief designer of Jaguar in the
presence of the E-Type successor, the F-Type, "he added. 

Set at the high-end Christopher Guy West Hollywood showroom, this event will
showcase British creativity and excellence in the design field. During the
evening attendees will be able to admire the fine work of Christopher Guy and
Ian Callum. From the Jaguar F-Type in the entrance of the showroom to the
iconic Christopher Guy pieces displayed throughout the showroom, the evening
will exude glamour and luxury. In line with the new collection that
Christopher Guy is releasing, a fashion show orchestrated by three-time Emmy
award winning costume designer, Birgit Muller, will contribute to an "elegance
with edge" theme for the event. The fashion presentation will feature modeling
of high end luxury brands that will allude to the glamour of iconic film
legends of Hollywood.
