The Fashion Awards Nominations 2023: The Full List – WWD

LONDONGrace Wales Bonner, Martine Rose, Maximilian Davis and Kim Jones are among the nominees for the 2023 Fashion Awards will take place on Dec. 4 at Royal Albert Hall in London.

The awards will have a definite British accent this season, with the majority of nominees born or based here, or drawn from the London Fashion Week calendar. They represent emerging and established talent, and most of them run independent labels.

In the past, many of these British-based designers had to compete with international names working for the big European luxury groups.

Categories include Model of the Year, British Menswear Designer, British Womenswear Designer, Designer of the Year, BFC Foundation Award, Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator, Outstanding Achievement Award and Leader of Change.

There are two new categories, New Establishment Menswear and the New Establishment Womenswear, which are meant to highlight up-and-coming talent.

“What’s so special about this year’s nominees is that they are a true representation of British creative energy and its impact on the fashion industry globally,” said Caroline Rush, chief executive officer of the BFC.

“We invited key press and buyers with an in-depth industry knowledge to define the shortlist of nominees and the list of names selected illustrates the wealth and breadth of design talent coming out of the U.K. right now,” she added.

Nominees for Designer of the Year and the BFC Foundation Award will be announced in November. 

Recipients of the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator, Outstanding Achievement Award, Leader of Change and several Special Recognition Awards will be announced in the next few months.

A committee of 1,000 industry members will vote for the nominees in the next weeks. For the first time the Model of the Year award will be decided by members of the public with an open vote.

Below is the full list of the nominees so far.
