Last night I attended the exclusive 'British Fashion Awards Nominees'. It was a fabulous gathering recognising the most influential people in fashion today and celebrated the reputation and development of British fashion. Presented by the chairman of the British Fashion Council 'Harold Tillman' we were once again reminded why Great Britain has become the place to watch in terms of innovative design and style.

"The British Fashion Awards recognise and celebrate the exceptional individuals and brands who've defined our fashion industry over the past year and we're incredibly proud to announce these nominees who represent a cross section of British fashion talent." said the BFC chairman as he was about to reveal the nominees for this years BFA's which will be taking place in London November 27th. The roster boasts massive names such as Stella McCartney, Victoria Beckham, Alexander McQueen the two berry's -  Burberry and Mulberry. Mary Katrantzou, who last year took home the award for Emerging Talent in RTW, is now up for the night’s most prestigious honor, Designer of the Year. She’ll compete against 2011′s New Establishment Award-winner Christopher Kane, as well as Red Carpet Award-winner Stella McCartney–the award Victoria Beckham is vying for this time around. Newcomers being recognized with nominations for R-T-W include J.W. Anderson, Michael van der Ham, Simone Rocha. As for the voted-by-the-public British Style Award? Two-time winner Alexa Chung has got some stiff style competition in both Beckhams, Kates Moss and Middleton, and Tom Ford? It's a bit of a tough one but I'm excited to see who will be taking the honor and trophy home at the November Awards.
