bfa2008_gallerypic02.jpgIt is nearly that time of the year again when we celebrate the cream of the crop in British fashion talent.

It was announced yesterday that the British Fashion Awards 2009 will be held on the 9th December at The Royal Court of Justice, The Strand. Considered one of the best-dressed nights on London's social calendar, the Swarovski-sponsored awards brings together everyone from designers to models, editors and celebrities.

Last year's top gong for Designer of the Year went to Luella Bartley, who succeeded Stella McCartney from 2007. Model of the Year was awarded to Jourdan Dunn, while other awards include Best Menswear Designer, Designer Brand and the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator. Expect a bigger than big event this year as the BFC rounds out its 25th anniversary celebrations.
