The British Fashion Awards were held Yesterday at the London Coliseum. I wish I could have been there! Growing up my only dream was to travel to London and go to Carnaby Street. It just seemed to like the greatest fashion place on earth. I just looked it up on the internet and it remains a very cool place to shop!
Anyway onto the fashion awards, Erdem won for best Women's Wear Designer, of course the line is crazy expensive but I am going to do my best to find something similar this year to post to my blog. Here is the website to drool over their clothing! https://erdem.com/shop
The Brand award went to Victoria Beckham for her global impact. Again really expensive but I do like the clean concept of her designs.
Preen won the Establishment Designer award for their global retail presence and strong example of British fashion.
The Emerging Womenswear Designer award winner: Marques'Almeida. This dynamic duo designed a collection for Topshop that hit the stores in October. So it is nice to have a winner that is also affordable, examples are below. Their line is also on the Opening Ceremony site. Lots of denim!
The Alexander McQueen line took the Red Carpet Designer Award, one of my favorites and always have really amazing looks!
Of course Anna Wintour received the Outstanding Achievement Award and I must say the print on her dress is reminiscent of the long Altuzarra for Target dress with the orchid print, Target rocks!

The global fashion awards are also being held in London next year, I guess they really are still the leaders in the fashion world.
