And finally Phoebe Philo for Celine; who i know through personal friends has an immense amount of admiration among the fashion industry and with such key and inspirational catwalk shows of late that are not to be missed.
Other categories include Accessories Designer Of The Year and a special outstanding contribution to fashion, which Alexander McQueen will be honoured with this year, amongst his four time winning Designer Of The Year.
But er... who put Victoria Beckham up for this? I don't believe her effort is competitive within the wonderful world of British Fashion, or stood up next to talent of the up and coming designers and their potential. Step aside lady.
Personally, i had hoped for Spanish born artist Angela de la Cruz to sweep the prize as from reviewing her work and her many recent interviews, i found her paintings and sculptures incredibly poignant, genuine and hard hitting to the point of raw reality. I feel she has a voice and something noteworthy to say or portray within the art world, one that we all should hear loud and clear, if not just Phillips sound recording...
