British Fashion Awards 2011

This week’s British Fashion Awards celebrated women as the forefront of British design with Sarah Burton, Victoria Beckham and Stella McCartney winning the most sought-after awards.

I was so pleased to see a well-deserved Sarah Burton, creative director at Alexander McQueen, named designer of the year. This award tops a fantastically successful year for Burton, who designed the most memorable dress of the decade, Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, and broke record visitor numbers for the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition in New York.

Sarah Burton has shown that Britain is again leading the design field with such exciting names as Stella McCartney, Burberry, Erdem, Christopher Kane, Paul Smith, Mary Katrantzou, Victoria Beckham, Charlotte Olympia and many more. Do you need any more reasons to buy British?
