Last night saw the well-dressed and well-heeled fashion crowd gather at London’s Savoy Hotel for the announcement of the nominees for this year’s British Fashion Awards.
It was a who’s-who of the London names – with designers including queen of print Mary Katrantouz, Scottish stars Jonathan Saunders and Christopher Kane (who was spotted wearing an amazing Balenciaga autumn 12 jumper!) mingling amongst rising stars including double act Agi and Sam and the lovely Simone Rocha.
The big announcement of the evening was for the ultimate prize, Designer of the Year, won last year by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. This year’s nominees are Christopher Kane, Mary Katrantzou and Olympic kit designer Stella McCartney. Read the rest of this year’s nominees.
The awards will take place on Tuesday November 27 and will be hosted by Nick Grimshaw and Lauren Laverne. We’re planning our outfits already!
