BFC announces British Fashion Awards shortlist

The British Fashion Council has revealed the shortlist of nominees for the British Fashion Awards 2010.

The event, which takes place on December 7, recognises the most influential people in the fashion industry.

The 10 award categories include Designer of the Year, which was picked up last year by Christopher Bailey for Burberry, the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator and the Designer Brand category.

This year Christopher Kane, Erdem and Phoebe Philo for Céline have been nominated for the Designer of the Year award, which recognises a British designer who has made a significant impact in the UK and internationally.

The nominations were chosen by a panel of industry judges, including editor of Harper’s Bazaar Lucy Yeomans and editor of Vogue Alexandra Shulman.

The winners will be selected by British and international media and buyers.

Burberry, Mulberry, Pringle of Scotland and Victoria Beckham have been shortlisted for the Designer Brand category.

The nominees for the Emerging Talent Award for Accessories are Charlotte Olympia, Husam El Odeh and Jessica McCormack while Mary Katrantzou, Meadham Kirchhoff and Michael van der Ham will battle it out for the Emerging Talent Award for Ready-to-Wear.

Models David Gandy, Lara Stone and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have been nominated for the Model of the Year award.

Accessory Designer of the Year is up for grabs by Camilla Skovgaard, Emma Hill for Mulberry and Nicholas Kirkwood. Christopher Bailey for Burberry, E.Tautz, Margaret Howell and Paul Smith have all been nominated for the Menswear Designer award while nominees for the Isabella Blow Award For Fashion Creator are Nick Knight, Nicola Formichetti and Rankin.

The evening will also see one designer pick up the British Fashion Council (BFC) Outstanding Achievement in Fashion award, which was last year won by John Galliano. An individual will pick up the British Style award.

Harold Tillman, chairman of the BFC said: “This year’s nominees are a reflection of the incredible vision and breadth of talent British designers offer. From the truly unique and inspiring collections by the designers nominated in the Emerging Talent categories to the remarkable impact designer brands Burberry, Mulberry, Pringle of Scotland and Victoria Beckham continue to make on the industry, the creativity of our designers drives forward the British fashion industry and we’re very proud to be celebrating this.”
