The Nominations For The Fashion Awards Are In


by Elizabeth Bennett |

The nominations for the annual Fashion Awards have been announced ahead of this year’s event on Monday 4th December at the Royal Albert Hall.

Hosted by the British Fashion Council in partnership with Swarovski, the fashion world’s answer to the Oscars honours the designers, models and business leaders who have made the biggest impact on the fashion industry in the last year.

Chosen by a board of over 2,000 fashion insiders, the nominees were announced by Natalie Massenet, chairman of the British Fashion Council and founder of Net-A-Porter.

‘These designers and brands were chosen from hundreds of international names and they represent the most creative talent and innovative businesses of the year,’ said Massenet.

In the Model Of The Year category Gigi Hadid has stiff competition to regain her title both from sister Bella and rising stars Adwoa Aboah, Kaia Gerber and Winnie Harlow. While in the Designer Of The Year category fashion heavyweights Raf Simons, Phoebe Philo and Alessandro Michele will fight it out for the prestigious prize.
