The Scottish Fashion Awards have announced an impressive list of nominees and honourees for the 9th annual fashion extravaganza, which will take place in 8 Northumberland, London on 1st September 2014. The event will be co-hosted by The Secretary of State for Scotland Alistair Carmichael MP and awards founder Dr Tessa Hartmann.
The black tie awards presentation will be hosted by TV personality Laura Whitmore followed by a glamorous Scottish banquet and will welcome supermodels, industry figures and fashion players from around the world to celebrate this wonderful showcase of Scottish fashion and design talent working in Scotland and around the world.
A host of high profile names are amongst the nominee shortlist, including Jonathan Saunders, Christopher Kane and Holly Fulton, to textile leaders like Dhu, Brora and Queene & Belle. There are a host of young creatives shaping Scotland’s fashionable future such as Deetz, Hayley Scanlan and Rachel McMillan. The ‘International Designer of the Year’ for best use of a Scottish fabric or Scottish inspired/influenced collection includes:  Simone Rocha, Marc By Marc Jacobs, Mulberry, Maison Martin Margiela and Vivienne Westwood. 
The event has also introduced two new categories; one being success in fashion exporting, which sees Edinburgh based designer/retailer Common People, ERIBÉ, Barrie Cashmere and Mackintosh highlighted for their successful export strategies. For the first time, the event has acknowledged ‘Luxury Retailers’ who are operating in the Scottish market place including Tommy Hilfiger, Burberry, Harvey Nichols, Louis Vuitton and Emporio Armani.
Finally, one of the most hotly contested categories is set to be Scottish Model of the Year 2014, which includes Jean Campbell, Paul Carrigan, Christopher Millington, Mary Charteris, Terri McGlone and Helena McKelvie, all of whom have a host of global ad campaigns under their belts. 
The Secretary of State for Scotland Alistair Carmichael said, "I'm delighted to co-host the 9th annual Scottish Fashion Awards this year with Dr Tessa Hartmann. It's great to see year on year the commercial and creative success these Scottish designers, brands and manufacturers are having and it's important they are acknowledged and supported.
“These awards are now recognised around the world as the benchmark of success within the global fashion community and are without a doubt the most high profile showcase of Scottish fashion, design and textile talent in the country. They are respected around the world and judged by a panel of renowned and esteemed international industry figures and they provide an invaluable platform for emerging Scottish talent, textile manufacturers, and fashion's future leaders.”
