Remember last year’s WGSN Global Fashion Awards? I certainly do. It was the second major awards ceremony I ever attended and I enjoyed every second of it. This year’s do is set to be even bigger and better. The event will be held at none other than the Victoria & Albert Museum and the designers up for prizes include the likes of Raf Simons, Phillip Lim and Colette Paris… Like I said, it’s going to be awesome. Last week the great and the good of London’s fashion community gathered at St Martins Lane Hotel to drink champagne, network and hear the shortlist. Between yacht cocktails with Johnnie Walker, shooting for Company Magazine and my own birthday bash the week before, I thought I’d be all mingled out by last Monday but somehow I managed to drum up the energy to slip into a floral Milly by Michelle Smith number and leap in a cab to Covent Garden.

Once inside the venue (heavily air conditioned, thank God) I felt positively sprightly and happily set about reminiscing on the previous Friday’s antics with Forward PR Founder, Courtney Blackman, Stylenoir Magazine Editor, James Joseph and Nephew London Founder, Nik Thakkar who all just so happen to be on this year’s judging panel. I also bumped into Donna Ida, Angela Scanlon, Harold Tillman and Rebekah Roy during the pre announcement mingling, further confirming my suspicions that this year’s ceremony is going to be a hot ticket occasion.

The room was already full when I arrived and by the time stylish songstress, Kate Nash took to the stage to announce the shortlist, it was positively heaving meaning that the cheering each announcement elicited was positively ear shattering. Then again, given the calibre of nominees, it would have been a crime not to get seriously excited.
