Victoria beckham's popular fashion brand is nominated for the British Fashion Awards 2010, for the first time.
Victoria Beckham’s fashion brand has made its first-ever appearance in the nominations for the 2010 British Fashion Awards. Her collection has been selected as one of four nominations for the Designer Brand award, together with the more-established names of Burberry, Mulberry and Pringle.
The nomination for Victoria Beckham's own label brand is an indication of how seriously the former Posh Spice is now regarded as a designer by the international fashion industry.
Mrs Beckham, 36, launched her label in New York just two years ago, and her global celebrity clientele just continues to grow. Her dresses and gowns have been worn by virtually every Red Carpet-worthy star including Drew Barrymore, Madonna, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, Demi Moore, Nicole Scherzinger, Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow, Heidi Klum, Cameron Diaz, Brooke Shields, and Leighton Meester, to name a few.
Christopher Kane, Erdem, and Phoebe Philo, whose collections for Celine have led the revival of no frills-no fuss, grown-up dressing, are the three nominations for the Designer of the Year ‘fashion oscar’.
Other nominations include:
*David Gandy, Lara Stone and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for Model of the Year
*Mary Katrantzou, Meadham Kirchhoff, and Michael van der Ham for Emerging Talent - Ready-to-Wear
*Charlotte Olympia, Husam El Odeh and Jessica McCormack for Emerging Talent - Accessories
*Camilla Skovgaard, Emma Hill (Mulberry), and Nicholas Kirkwood - Accessory Designer of the Year
*Christopher Bailey (Burberry), E. Tautz, Margaret Howell, and Paul Smith - Menswear Designer of the Year
*Nick Knight of ShowStudio, Nicola Formichetti (one of Lady Gaga’s stylists), and the photographer Rankin - the Isabella Blow Fashion Creator Award
The winners, together with the two people chosen for the BFC Outstanding Achievement in Fashion, and the British Style ‘crown’, will be announced at the British Fashion Awards gala evening, on Tuesday, December 7th.
