The British Fashion Council has announced Astrid Andersen, Grace Wales Bonner and Mr Hare as nominees for the Emerging Menswear Designer gong at the British Fashion Awards 2015.

Bonner’s collections have been critically acclaimed ever since her debut at January’s Fashion East installation. While Astrid Andersen was nominated for this year’s BFC/GQ Fashion Fund (it was won by Patrick Grant at E. Tautz).

Tautz is also nominated, along with Tom Ford and JW Anderson in the Menswear Designer category — the latter winning the same award in 2014 and New Establishment Designer in 2013.

The New Establishment Designer award sees Emilia Wickstead, Mary Katrantzou and Craig Green gaining nominations. The latter making his appearance in the list of nominees for a second year running as Green won last year’s Emerging Menswear Designer award.

“This annual event is fast becoming one of the highlights of the global, fashion calendar,” Natalie Massenet MBE, Chairman of the BFC, said.

“The awards recognise the incredible talent we are so fortunate to work with and celebrates the excellence and creativity within our industry both at home and abroad.”

Winners will be announced on Monday 23 November, keep eyes peeled.
