The noms have been announced for the biggest event in the fashwan calender, The British Fashion Awards 2011. This year there will also be two new awards – the Red Carpet Award gong, which gives ‘recognition to a British designer who is creating global awareness of their designs in the media’ and the Menswear Award which will go to an ‘innovative and directional designer who is emerging as an influential force in British Menswear’. I can think of so many who could fall into this category!
An individual who embodies the spirit of London will also be honoured at the event for the Outstanding Achievement Award and the British Style Award voted for by the public features a shortlist including Adele, Florence Welch (my winner!!) and Emma Watson.
So here’s the full list of noms:
EMERGING TALENT AWARD – ACCESSORIES
EMERGING TALENT AWARD – MENSWEAR
ISABELLA BLOW AWARD FOR FASHION CREATOR
RED CARPET AWARD
DESIGNER OF THE YEAR
Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen
