This year’s shortlist for the Scottish Fashion Awards has just been announced, and it’s one stiff competition ahead.

With a coveted judging panel including the likes of Brian Duffy, president of Ralph Lauren Europe; Professor Wendy Dagworthy, head of Fashion and Textiles at the Royal College of Art; Caroline Rush, ceo of the Royal College of Art; and editor Dolly Jones, the industry experts have a tough decision on their hands judging by this year’s round of final nominees.

“The talent pool highlighted by the judging process for the Scottish Fashion Awards gets better and better each year, making our job increasingly difficult,” said Dolly Jones. “The kudos of winning one of the awards, though, has increased as the style bar is raised – so it makes the event all the more exciting. I can’t wait to see who wins.”

Christopher Kane and Jonathan Saunders share the Designer of the Year nominations with several who have graduated from the Young Designer category, including Louise Gray, Holly Fulton and Patrick Grant’s E Tautz, leaving the Young Designer category open to some new fashionable names, while the Model and Graduate of the Year award also makes way for some big names in the future of fashion to stand up and pay attention, too.

The select winners will be announced on June 15th at Glasgow’s Science Centre, reports Vogue UK.
