Samantha Cameron opted for Christopher Kane when she presented Jonathan Saunders with his second consecutive designer of the year award. Mrs Cameron had worn Jonathan Saunders during Michelle Obama's state visit last month and it was extremely well received. Mr Saunders victory surprised guests as many including Jonathan Saunders himself believed that Christopher Kane would take the award. Other winners included Henry Holland who picked up International Designer of the Year whilst Tali Lennox received model of the year award which in my opinion was very well deserved due to her grace and professionalism. The most interesting award at fashion awards shows is always Young designer of the year, the honour that this year was bestowed on Henrietta Ludgate, a designer that deserves her growing attention. Ms Ludgate focusses on luxury Scottish textiles whilst utilising the finest British materials combined with divine Scottish craftsmanship.

I have become very interested in the recent wave of Scottish houses reinvention, the most profound being Pringle of Scotland who I hope will soon receive an Award due to it's immense heritage combined with a rare high fashion twist. Not to mention the arrival of Ex creative director of Balmain taking the design helm, there is only good things to come for Pringle of Scotland.
