Dubbed by many as the British fashion industry's answer to the Oscar's, November 25th is going to be a huge night for the nominees of this year's British fashion awards, announced today.
Agyness Deyn (pictured) is up for the award she scooped last year - Model of the Year, competing against Jourdan Dunn and Lily Donaldson, while Jimmy Choo, Agent Provocateur and Paul Smith are all nominated for Designer Brand of the Year.
Make-up artist Pat McGrath, Terry Jones, Editor of i-d Magazine and photographer Tim Walker are nominated for the Isabella Blow award for Fashion Creator and up for Red Carpet Designer of the Year, which was won by Marchesa last year are Matthew Williamson, Giles Deacon and Stella McCartney.
Jonathan Kelsey, Rupert Sanderson and Lara Bohinc are all competing for Accessories Designer of the Year, which was won by Tomm Binns last year.
Swarovski, who sponsor the event also present their Emerging Talent Award for Ready-to-Wear and Accessories on the night. This year Danielle Scutt, Louise Goldin and Felder Felder are nominated for fashion and Charlotte Olympia, Anna Vince and Nicholas Kirkwood are up for the accessories award. 'It's really an honor to be included in the shortlist. Im really delighted to get this recognition from Swarovski and the BFC', Kirkwood told us on hearing of his nomination.
The black tie event is a highlight of the fashion calender, and of course we'll be there to capture it all.
