In an glamorous ceremony (11th June 2012),the Scottish Fashion Awards aka the country’s most important fashion event took place(in association with InStyle and held at the impressive Clyde Auditorium in Glasgow) and was no short of glam or celebrity presences such as host Alexa Chung,and others.
Multi-talented Christopher Kane won the ” Scottish Fashion Designer of the Year Award”, commenting as he was accepting it: ‘‘I am extremely proud and grateful to receive my award. I think that Scotland has such a wealth of great fashion talent from design through to production and the heritage is something that we should all be proud of.”
Mr Kane has shown a unique ability in creating wearable yet innovative pattern cuts and also in experiment with different material,always with quality results so him winning wasn’t much of a surprise.His shows are always of the most sought of events during fashion week and never fail to amaze you as i have also personally experienced.
Still,there is another person to keep an eye on,nominated and winning ”Scottish Young Designer of the Year”-Hayley Scanlan. I must admit i wasn’t familiar with her work and got caught quite by surprise coming across inspired designs, bright colors and rock-yet-chic attitude in a very modern concept line.I’ll carry this name to mind.
