Scotland's Finest in Fashion

Exciting news for stylish Scots - The Scottish Fashion Awards have announced the shortlist for it's sixth annual awards night. It is to take place on June 15th at the Glasgow Science Centre, hosted by Laura Whitmore of MTV Europe. 
Last year's winners include Jonathan Saunders for Designer of the Year and Holly Fulton for Young Designer of the Year. Also last year, a new category was formed: Graduate Designer of the Year. This was won by Jett Sweeney who's collection I really admired whilst watching the Edinburgh College of Art catwalk show.
This year the awards ceremony will be judged by some of the biggest names in fashion, including Dolly Jones (editor of Vogue.com) and Caroline Rush (CEO of the British Fashion Council.)
The list of nominees is a reminder of how many talented Scots there are in the fashion industry. I am hoping to attend for the first time, and look forward to the results.
