Best of British

  

Last night, Britain heralded the best of British fashion with the British Fashion Awards 2010. In attendance, amongst others, were designer of the moment Holly Fulton, Daphne Guiness, shoe queen Charlotte Dellal of Charlotte Olympia, and obligatory fashionable PM’s wife, in the form of Sarah Cameron. The event, held at the Savoy Hotel, heralded such British fashion icons as Nicholas Kirkwood (Best Accessory Designer), GMD favourite Alexa Chung (Best British Style) and Lara Stone (Best Model), while also paying tribute to Alexander McQueen, after his untimely death earlier this year, with an Outstanding Achievement award.

Perhaps it is testament to the eclecticism of true British style that on the Red Carpet, current trends and Fashion Week Favourites were left behind in favour of iconic British designs and all-out showstopping creations that wereavant garde and made statements far beyond the frou frou gowns of the Oscars. Perhaps it was also the occasion that has merited a certain maturity and grace from its guests – this is why my top picks from the night reflect the flair and fabulosity of Great British Fashion.
