The British Fashion Council (BFC) announces the shortlist of nominees for the 2008 British Fashion Awards supported by Swarovski. The Awards recognise the very best of British fashion talent who collectively play a key role in establishing the UK as a creative and commercial force in a highly competitive global market. The winners will be announced at the British Fashion Awards, on Tuesday 25th November.

The ten categories include Designer of the Year, the ultimate accolade, which recognises a leading British designer of couture, ready-to-wear, knitwear or accessories who has directed the shape of fashion in the past year both in the UK and internationally.

The event will also celebrate one designer who throughout their career has made an impact on the industry internationally with the BFC Award for Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design.

Nominations for awards are made by key players within the industry. The winners are selected by relevant panels of leading media and buyers.
