Professional Clothing Awards 2015


Kanya King, MBE Will Be Hosting The 2017 Professional Clothing Awards


We are delighted to announce Kanya King, MBE will be hosting The PCA 2017 at the 5-star venue: Intercontinental London – The O2. Kanya King, MBE is an internationally renowned entrepreneur and founder of the MOBO Awards. In 1996, she was given just six weeks to set up the very first awards show and 18 years later it still holds the distinction of being one of the most televised urban music awards shows in the world today, reaching in excess of 400 million viewers across over 200 countries.  

Kanya has always been an innovator and has had a lot of practice at persuading people to come round to her way of thinking. Kanya was influenced by her father’s advice to ‘be the best you can be’ and it was that advice which motivated her to start contributing to the family finances from a young age. She is an iconic inspiration to budding female entrepreneurs and music lovers worldwide, creating a brand that recognises, motivates and inspires talent on an international scale.

MOBO has become much more than just an awards ceremony - it’s now an iconic, year-round, agendasetting brand encompassing everything from a live tour to a TV channel and website, while offering training and guidance to several generations of aspiring singers, MCs, DJs and producers.

In addition, Kanya has received numerous honours for her business and community achievements, including an Honorary Fellowship at Goldsmith’s University and a Doctorate of Business at both London and Leeds Metropolitan Universities. She is also an honoured patron of Music at the City of Westminster College. Kanya is a board member of the E2E Exchange, an entrepreneurial network along with Richard Branson and Duncan Bannatyne.

Once again we are thrilled to be welcoming Kanya as our host for The Professional Clothing Awards 2017 and we are sure she will make it an evening to remember. For more information on how to enter or attend the Professional Clothing Awards visit, email:
