THE NOMINATIONS FOR THE BRITISH FASHION AWARDS 2017

The Fashion Awards, organised annually by the British Fashion Council, have been one of the most prestigious awards in the fashion industry since they were first established in 1984. Legends such as Karl Lagerfeld and Alexander McQueen are among the designers who have received the coveted trophy. This year, Alessandro Michele (Gucci) and Phoebe Philo (Céline) will be delighted with their nominations in the Designer of the Year category. Fenty Puma by Rihanna and Vetements will be battling it out in the Urban Luxe category.

Supermodel and Instagram star Gigi Hadid, who received the Model of the Year award last year, has been nominated once again – as has her sister, Bella. Competition comes from the 16-year-old Kaia Gerber, daughter of Cindy Crawford, who made her catwalk debut this season and is already Lagerfeld’s new muse.
