I’m off to the British Fashion awards tonight! I am always interested to see who will win in the emerging talent categories. This year, there are two Brazilians nominated in the competition: Paula Gerbase’s brand 1205, for ‘Emerging Womenswear Designer’ (remember I talked about her?) and Fernando Jorge for ‘Emerging Accessory Designer’. Fernando hails from SP and now lives in London, but his style is quintessentially Brazilian. I love that he uses locally sourced gemstones. Good luck to both of them!

It is has been quite a year for British fashion, but I am constantly in awe of Stella McCartney’s achievements. This year she has been nominated in the ‘Best Brand’ category, and it's no wonder! Her latest take on the cartoon craze (which I am in love with) already has waiting lists around the world!
