Winners at the Scottish Fashion Awards
BY STYLE EDITOR, ON 24 JUN 2011 16:09 DESIGNERS AT DEBENHAMSCOMMENTS
When the winners of the Scottish Fashion Awards were announced a few days ago we were more than familiar with several of the winners.
Jonathan Saunders, the Central St Martins graduate, scooped the Designer of the Year Award for a second time in a row! Saunders has had a hugely successful year internationally with his eponymous line featuring an array of signature graphic silk prints and was a more than deserving winner.
As one of Debenhams Edition collection designers, we’re so proud of his achievement and are all excited for his upcoming AW11 collection for Debenhams, due to be released at the end of the summer.
We had the chance to take a sneak peak at his next collection the other day and it was just as we expected – tres chic! A combination of stunning colours and stylish prints the collection is sure to stir up a storm, with the girls in the office here already debating over who will be the first to wear one of his creations.
The ‘official jeweller’ for the event, Swarovski, made sure that the red carpet was dazzling, but to add to the excitement Jonathan Saunders wasn’t the only Debenhams designer to come away with an award at the Scottish Fashion Awards. Our fabulous Henry Holland was crowned International Designer of the Year for the best use of Scottish textiles in his main line.
His fantastic use of material and print has also been a focal point in his H! by Henry Holland collection for Debenhams. It’s one of the many reasons why he’s become such a fashion staple in the wardrobes of fashionistas around the UK. Check out his H! by Henry Holland collection and blog for all things Henry.
And finally if the designers hadn’t done well enough, Tali Lennox went and bagged the award for Model of the Year! As our campaign model for the launch of the Diamond by Julian Macdonald range she’s a more than deserving winner with her beautiful looks and killer model poses. Well done Miss Lennox!
So from all the staff at Debenhams we send a massive congratulations to our wonderful designers Jonathan Saunders and Henry Holland, and fabulous model Tali Lennox. Keep up the good work guys, we love it!
