british fashion awards invite.

Yes please. I had confirmation of tickets tonight by a Miss. Harry Waters. Big up.

For anyone who doesn't know, The British Fashion Awards are a long-standing ceremony (established in 1989), organised by the British Fashion Council, held anually celebrating the success and creativity of the British fashion industry. This year, the venue of choice is the Savoy theatre in Westminster. And I, and my privileged plus one will be there too, breathing the same air as Alexa and friends.

The ceremony recognises those who have made outstanding contributions to British clothing design during the year. The awards include that of British Designer of the Year, Best Accessory Designer, Best Menswear Designer - you get the picture. The ceremony is pretty much an excuse for a celebration of the reputation and development of the British fashion industry. I cannot wait.

The selection panel comprises that of a collection of renowned fashion editors and store buyers. 

The nominees were announced at the beginning of September. Victoria Beckham faces tough competition from the likes of Mulberry, Pringle and Burberry for the Best Designer Brand of the Year Award. I'm personally backing Burberry.

A slight change to the proceedings this year in that they are opening the voting for the British Style Award to the public. You can cast your vote here but you must be registered with the British Fashion Council to do so.

Included in the running are: Alexa (obvs), Cheryl Cole (why?) Daisy Lowe, Lily Cole and the usual suspects - VB, Emma Watson, Stella McCartney.

Models Nominated (+David Gandy)
 Roise Huntington-Whiteley and Lara Stone

The dress code is black tie, whattowearwhattowear.
Excited doesn't begin to cover it.
