Yet another victory for Brazilian fashion: designer Paula Gerbase, who has been based in London for years, has been nominated for the Emerging Womenswear Designer category as part of the British Fashion Awards. 

The nomination is a great honor and Paula is certainly a deserving nominee: she spent years honing her tailoring skills at the famous Saville Row (much like Stella McCartney) and this experience can be seen in her brand, 1205. The cut, fabric and asymmetrical proportions have a unique quality to them. Think simple, basic pieces, but intricately beautiful due to their impeccable design.  

Here’s to 1205!  Good luck!
