The British Fashion Council has just announced the nominees for the 2011 British Fashion Awards, which are essentially the U.K.'s answer to our prestigious CFDA's. The ceremony, which is scheduled for November 28, is meant to recognize the most influential people in fashion today and also promote the growth of British fashion.
With all the attention the U.K. has been getting lately for that stylish princess of theirs and being dubbed the "new fashion capital," British fashion is definitely more relevant than ever this year. That may be why the BFC has decided to re-introduce the Red Carpet award, which "gives recognition to a British designer who is creating global awareness of their designs in the media."

Emerging Talent Award--Ready to Wear J.W. Anderson Mary Katrantzou Peter Pilotto
