British Fashion Award Nominees Announced
The nominees for this years British Fashion Awards, the annual awards for the best in British fashion from designers to best dressed celebrities, have been announced and seems like it may be a tight race in all the categories. Sarah Burton, who created the now infamous royal wedding dress, Christopher Kane and Erdem are all up for British Designer of the Year while Victoria Beckham is going against fashion heavyweights Tom Ford, Burberry and Stella McCartney for Designer Brand of the year.
The model of the year category also sees a newcomer against more seasoned competition, with Georgia Jagger up against Kristen McMenamy and Stella Tennant.
Although it seems easy to pick winners already, particularly in the Designer of the Year category, the sheer brilliance of the all nominees could bring some surprises.
