The Fashion Awards 2018: All the nominees (including Meghan’s wedding dress designer) 

It's fashion's big night out

Leanne Bayley

The British Fashion Council has announced the nominees for The Fashion Awards 2018. The annual event, which is in partnership with Swarovski, celebrates creativity and innovation within the fashion industry and it’s a starry night. For this year's bash, which takes place on Monday 10 December, expect all the big names to attend. In past years we've seen Lady Gaga partying with Kate Moss and Donatella Versace - what a night! 


For 2018, the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding dress designer, Clare Waight Keller, is up for an award, and will be going up against a royal wedding guest - Victoria Beckham! Let’s hope this isn’t going to get awkward.
