WGSN Global Fashion Awards 2011 – Short List Party

This is the second year of trend-forecasting giant ’s Global Fashion Awards. It’s been a big success and has had nominees from all over the world. E-map (owner of WGSN) gives out many fashion awards and the has become their most popular event. The short list was announced at a party at St Martin’s Lane.

It’s quite an exciting event and I’m particularly excited to see who will win the Breakthrough Designer, Most Creative Student, Outstanding Fashion Collaboration/Collaborator Collection and Outstanding Fashion Innovator/Innovation. This year I’m one of the judges and the winners will be announced at Gotham Hall in New York City on the 20th of October.
