Shortlist announced for 10th anniversary of the Scottish Fashion Awards

Holly Fulton, Christopher Kane, Jonathan Saunders, Kestin Hare and Patrick Grant for E Tautz will battle it out to be crowned Scottish designer of the year at the 10th anniversary of the Scottish Fashion Awards in London in September.

The black-tie ‘Highland Gathering’, which will be held on September 3 at the Corinthia Hotel London, will be co-hosted by David Mundell, secretary of state for Scotland, and chairman and awards founder Dr Tessa Hartmann.

The judging will start next week with a panel that includes Drapers’ editorial director Eric Musgrave, British Fashion Council chief executive Caroline Rush, Glamour editor Jo Elvin and Marie Claire editor-in-chief Trish Halpin.

“We’re having a gala party this year to showcase the incredible Scottish fashion, design and textile talent we have working in Scotland and around the world,” said Hartmann.

“There will be DJs and a club décor to replace the formality of banqueting tables. Once the awards are presented the celebrations will begin and, as you know, we Scots do love to throw a good party.”

  • Good luck to all those who are shortlisted. The club décor and DJ’s will certainly fuel the celebrations and make for a super fun evening, and no doubt an interesting album of photos. An interesting discussion about the validity of these awards is taking place, join in the conversation to give your view. http://www.touchretail.co.uk/blog/2015/07/03/are-drapers-independent-awards-still-valid/

    David, the Scottish Fashion Awards, now in their 10th year, have no connection with Drapers or any of our four national fashion retailing awards. I am pleased, however, that on occasion someone from Drapers is invited to join the SFA judging panel.
