via Fashion Monitor: News – BFC unveils new category for the British Fashion Awards.

Designer of the Year, the ultimate accolade, recognises a leading British based designer brand of couture, ready-to-wear, knitwear or accessories that has directed the shape of fashion in the past year and elevated their international reputation. The award is hotly contested this season between nominees Christopher Kane, Erdem and Sarah Burton for McQueen.”


Thanks to MPDClick for this report ”

“A recent interview with Sarah Burton on Nowness.com revealed details on the fashion houses design process and influences for the spring/summer 12 collection, proving MPDClick’s trend predictions for the season.

Burton explained how the initial theme is created just how Lee Alexander McQueen used to work – creating a world, a story, which is then developed within the signature house style. She also explained how she finds it amazing how designers do share underlying themes, in this case for spring/summer 12, underwater. This is a trend MPDClick predicted back in 2010 titled Water Footprint, through comprehensive economic, lifestyle, environmental and social analysis.

Sarah Burton talked through how some of the garments were made, detailing the mathematical process of production to create such dramatic effects. This method was another key indicator, again proving our predictions shown in our autumn/winter 11/12 trend Innovate which talks about the use of scientific and mathematical methods to produce complex patterns. ” for images and more see  MPDClick trend journal
