British Fashion Awards 2011 Nominees Announced And My Predictions


Ok, so how is this for a first post on Allowings?  The British Fashion Awards 2011 nominees have been announced.  And I am going to make my predictions.

So, for Designer Of The Year, I am going to go a little controversial.  The nominees are Christopher Kane, Erdem and Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.  And I am not backing Sarah Burton.  I’m backing Erdem to win.  And not just win, by win by a landslide.

For Model Of The Year, I think it’s going to be really, really close.  The nominees are Georgia Jagger, Kristen McMenamy and Stella Tennant.  And I think it’s going to be a close fought battle between Kristen McMenamy and Stella Tennant, with Kristen McMenamy just edging it.

For Designer Brand Of The Year I think it’s going to be another landslide battle. The nominees this year are Burberry, Stella McCartney, Tom Ford and Victoria Beckham.  And I think Burberry are going to win it by a mile.

For the Isabella Blow Award For Fashion Creator prize, the nominees are Guido Palau, Katie Grand and Sam Gainsbury.  I think Katie Grand is going to win this by quite some margin.

For Menswear Designer, I think it’s going to be a really close race between Kim Jones, Margaret Howell and Oliver Spencer, but I really think that Margaret Howell is going to edge it over some excellent competition.

For Accessory Designer, I think it’s going to be Charlotte Olympia who will beat Emma Hill for Mulberry and Katie Hillier to the prize, and by a landslide too.

For Emergent Talent – Ready To Wear, the nominees are J.W. Anderson, Mary Katrantzou and Peter Pilott.  I think it’s going to be really close between Mary Katrantzou and Peter Pilott, but I think Mary Katrantzou will just edge it.

For Emergent Talent – Accessories, the nominees are Jordan Askill, Nasir Mazhar and Tabitha Simmons.  And I think Tabitha Simmons is absolutely going to run away with this one.

Lastly, for Emergent Talent – Menswear, the nominees are Christopher Raeburn, James Long and J.W. Anderson, and I think that James Long is absolutely going to walk away with this one.

So, why do I think these people are going to win?  Why do I think some people are going to walk away with some awards and some are going to be closely fought contests?  Well, I have my own methods of figuring these things out.  Let’s just see what happens huh?
