Here's who's up for an award this year
Every year, the fash pack gathers to celebrate at the Fashion Awards in London and this year's nominees have just been released...

The nominees for this year’s Fashion Awards 2018 have just been revealed. Each year, the ceremony takes place in London and celebrates the best talent in the industry, both revered legends and rising newcomers. This year’s nominees were announced by the British Fashion Council in a ceremony that took place this morning in London and there are some notable new inclusions to the list.

Adut Akech, who made history earlier this year as the second ever black model to play the role of Bride in a Chanel show, is nominated for the first time in the hotly contested Model of the Year category, alongside last year’s winner Adwoa Aboah, plus previous nominees Bella Hadid, Winnie Harlow and Kaia Gerber

Richard Quinn, who received the Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design earlier this year from Her Majesty herself after she sat front row at his show, is nominated for the first time in the British Emerging Talent Womenswear category. 

Meghan Markle‘s go-to designer Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy is up for British Designer of the Year Womenswear and Designer of the Year (in this category she’s up against Alessandro Michele, Kim Jones, Pierpaolo Picciolo and Virgil Abloh) , and Riccardo Tisci is nominated for his role at Burberry in both the British Designer of the Year Menswear and Brand of the Year categories.
