deryckwalker_scottishdesigneroftheyear.jpgOne of my favourite designers, Deryck Walker, who I had the pleasure of interviewing earlier this year, has just been named Designer of the Year at the Scottish Style Awards.

Held Friday evening at Glasgow's Kelvingrove Art Gallery, Walker was joined by singer/actress Shirley Manson (Most Stylish Female) and Harper's Bazaar editor Lucy Yeomans (Tastemaker of the Year) in taking home an award.

"I'm always really nervous about these things," Walker admitted before the ceremony. Following his win, he thanked his mum, who was dressed in Thierry Mugler.

"It's great to see talent recognised in your city," he said in his acceptance speech.
