This Year’s Nominees For The British Fashion Awards Have been Announced

Looks all Gucci to us!


With the end of the year fast approaching, so are the annual British Fashion Awards. On Tuesday, this year’s nominees have finally been announced, after being chosen by a board of over 2500 industry professionals. And according to the lineup which stretches over 10 categories, this year’s ceremony will be more than interesting.

After Harry Styles’ MET Gala look became THE fashion subject of conversation and their controversial SS20 collection, it’s no wonder that Gucci is going into the BFA’s with a whole four nominations, namely ‘Accessories Designer of the Year’, ‘Brand of the Year’, ‘Business Leader’ and ‘Designer of the Year’. Other recurring names on the nominations list are Jonathan Anderson for JW Anderson and Loewe, Daniel Lee for Bottega Veneta and Kim Jones for Dior Homme.
