British Fashion Awards
I agree whole heartedly on Luella winning designer of the year and Jourdan Dunn winning model of the year but again it comes down to the BFA's lack of diversity when it comes to considering menswear. Christopher Bailey is an amazing designer with an amazing team and Burberry yes is a great brand. But it is a big corporation with a large team of skilled designers last year Bailey won against other nominees such as Casette Playa, this year he won against established houses such as Paul Smith and Richard James. I just wonder what the panel thought of London's emerging designers such as James Long, Aitor Throupe, Carola Eurler, Cassette Playa etc etc to not give them a look in or to not even bother to nominate them. For Burberry to win the award two years in a row i just think it shows the laziness and how much effort the British Fashion Council put in when it comes to nurturing and caring for the new breed of menswear designers.
