The Design of the Year awards wouldn’t feel right without Kate Middleton’s Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress making an appearance on the nominations list would they?
While we’d usually be pretty confident that Sarah Burton would walk away with the award without a shadow of a doubt (as the wedding dress could easily win a Design of the Century award if such a category existed), this time we’re not so sure.
Sarah Burton has some fierce competition for the accolade, with the majority of the nominees in the ‘fashion’ category being worthy winners in their own right. Some of the other creations nominated include the record-breaking Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibit at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Vivienne Westwood’s autumn/winter 2011 Ethical Fashion Africa collection, among many (equally incredible!) others.
We do not want to be in the room when the decision is being made… where on earth would you even start?
The winners will be announced on April 24th at an awards ceremony held at the Design Museum . Good luck to everyone !
