This morning the British Fashion Council released a shortlist of designers up for the first ever BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund - the CFDAs for Brits. Richard Nicoll and Nicholas Kirkwood are on the list, as well as Marios Schwab, Erdem, Clements Ribeiro, E. Tautz and Angel Jackson. No major surprises, except for the inclusion of Christopher Kane. He's hardly new or struggling, he's done three collections for Topshop, designs Versus for Versace and is, probably, sick and tired of still being labeled up-and-coming since Anna plucked him out of Central St. Martin's four years ago. Plus, Kane's had a very public mentor, Donatella, for over three years. Surely someone else could use a hand?
