Scottish Fashion Awards announce nominees for 2012
Apr '12
The Scottish Fashion Awards have announced an impressive nominee shortlist for 2012. The event, which will be hosted by international style icon Alexa Chung on 11th June in Glasgow, recognizes the most influential global Scottish players in fashion.

It also provides an unrivalled platform for new and emerging talent hailing from Scotland and is attended by influential industry leaders, designers, models, retailers and celebrities and celebrates the best of what Scotland has to offer in fashion, design and textiles.

A host of high profile names are amongst the nominee shortlist including Jonathan Saunders, Christopher Kane, Holly Fulton, Louise Gray, April Crichton for Sonia Rykiel, to textile leaders like Hawick Cashmere, Caerlee Mill and Dashing Tweeds.

There are a host of young guns shaping Scotland's fashionable future like Obscure Couture, Hayley Scanlan, Jennifer Morris and Bonnie Bling to a scattering of global supermodels including Tali Lennox, Amanda Hendrick and Louis Galloway.

This year, the Communicator category line up reads like the A-Z of Britain's top fashion editors with reps from Harpers Bazaar, Vogue.com and The Times being included along with creative stars from Louis Vuitton and international menswear brand Duchamp. There is also International Category for 'Best Use of Scottish fabric by an International Designer', which includes top fashion brands like Mulberry, APC, Corrie Nielson and Brora.

The finalists will be judged by an exclusive panel made up of professionals from the worlds leading fashion houses, industry players and leading figures in style including photographer Rankin, Sara Maino (Italian Vogue), Paula Reed (Grazia), Joanna Coles (Marie-Claire), Trish Halpin (Marie-Claire) Sarah Mower (US Vogue), and Eilidh MacAskill (InStyle). Winners will be announced at the glittering awards ceremony and gala at The Clyde Auditorium, Glasgow, Scotland.

The event will feature nominee catwalk shows, top music acts and an exclusive Swarovski runway show, previewing for the first time in the UK the upcoming Winter 2012 'Kingdom of Jewels' fashion and couture collections, created by Nathalie Colin, the Paris based Creative Director. A Gala VIP dinner for select guests will follow thereafter.

Now a firm fixture on Swarovski's International Red Carpet Calendar which includes The Golden Globes, The Oscars, Cannes Film Festival and The Scottish Fashion Awards, the event will be led by founder and Chair Tessa Hartmann, who launched this international fashion extravaganza 7 years ago.
