With the Scottish Fashion Awards 2011 just over one week away the excitement is building for the nominees and for me personally as this year I will be the proud owner of one red carpet pass! This will allow me to snap the arrival of the most exciting talents in Scottish fashion and also be the ultimate high for a novice blogger such as me. Hopefully I can step up to the mark and secure some lovely shots which I promise will be shared with you as soon as humanly and electronically possible!
The nominees for Scottish Designer of the Year 2011 are all so amazingly talented I have no clue how the judging panel will manage the choice and I for one don’t envy their position. Sponsored by Vogue dot com last years accolade was bestowed upon Jonathan Saunders. Nominated again this year one wonders if he will once more take the crown…a strong possibility considering his latest collection.
Other nominees include the legendary Christopher Kane whose SS11 collection was beyond dazzling and used neon in ways that enabled us to forget the fashion crimes of the 80s!
Goddess of the graphic print Holly Fulton is next on the list of nominees her larger than life accessories and eye popping prints are hard to resist!
The colourful designs of Louise Gray have also been noted with a well deserved nomination for this avant garde designer.
Last (but by no means least) on the list of nominees for designer of the year is E. Tautz purveyor of fine flannels and the kind of school boy inspired style that even Sebastian and Charles would be proud of.
So who will take the crown? We wait with breath that is bated…
