Posh and Stella McCartney in race for British designer of the year title
London: Sir Paul McCartney’s daughter Stella and footie ace David Beckham’s wife Victoria are in the running for Designer Of The Year at the British Fashion Awards 2012, along with Mary Kantrantzou and Christopher Kane.
Burberry and Mulberry have also made the cut for the award, which will be given to a British brand that has made an impact on the international fashion scene, the Daily Mail reported.
Although Beckham is new to the British fashion scene, her designs have made a splash in both the UK and across the pond with numerous A-listers rushing out to get their hands on her figure-hugging dresses.
Roksanda Ilincic, the Duchess of Cambridge and fashion ambassador Samantha Cameron’s choice of designer is also a firm contender.
For the event’s eye-candy, David Gandy will attempt to beat Cara Delevigne and Jourdan Dunn to the crown of best model.
The British Fashion Council will once again be looking to the public to decide the winner of the British Style Award 2012, sponsored by Vodafone.
The award, which was won by Alexa Chung in 2010 and 2011, will be presented at this year’s British Fashion Awards.
This award is to recognise an individual who most embodies the spirit of London and is an international ambassador for London as a leading creative fashion capital.
The British Style Award is based on the success of the London 25 Award, introduced in 2009 as part of the BFC’s 25th anniversary celebrations and awarded to Kate Moss.
The award is decided entirely by public vote and a list of nominees has been complied by a panel of key industry opinion formers.
The nominees this year include Cara Delevingne, David Gandy, Florence Welch, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Tinie Tempah and Victoria Beckham.
The award ceremony will take place on November 27.
