Former Central Saint Martins students Christopher Kane, Simone Rocha and Nicholas Kirkwood are among the winners of the British Fashion Awards 2013. The awards, which are voted for by over 300 people in the industry, celebrate fashion’s biggest successes from the past year.
Christopher Kane, who studied both his BA and MA in fashion at Central Saint Martins, went home with the prestigious title of Womenswear Designer of the Year. It has been a triumphant year for the London-based brand, and the award recognises the designer’s instrumental role in developing women’s fashion. Already one of the most talented and innovative British designers, the success of Kane’s two ready-to-wear collections at London Fashion Week secured his reputation.
The award for Accessory Designer of the Year went to Nicholas Kirkwood, who did his foundation course at Central Saint Martins. It’s been a good year for Kirkwood, who has opened a flagship store in Las Vegas, launched pre-collection and menswear lines, and gained investment for his iconic footwear. This is the third time he has been named Accessory Designer of the Year.
Simone Rocha, who studied for her fashion MA at Central Saint Martins, was named Emerging Womenswear Designer.
