British shoe designers Tabitha Simmons, Charlotte Olympia and Sophia Webster have been nominated for Accessory Designer of the Year award at the British Fashion Awards. The annual ceremony will be held Nov. 23 at the London Coliseum.
In 2013, Webster won the Emerging Accessory Designer award as her business was taking off. Now, major celebrities including Cara Delevingne, Emily Blunt and Hailee Steinfeld wear her designs. For her spring ’16 presentation at London Fashion Week, Webster went with an ocean theme, calling it “#crazysexynauticool.” She also debuted a Barbie by Sophia Webster collection for both women and children this summer.
Simmons won the 2015 CFDA Award for Accessories Designer of the Year as well as the Swarovski Award for Accessory Design at the 2012 awards.
The 2013 Accessory Designer of the Year award went to Nicholas Kirkwood—the third time the designer was honored. Last year, Anya Hindmarch won the award while Prism was honored as an emerging brand.
Other nominees for various awards include Burberry, Alexander McQueen, Erdem, Tom Ford, Christopher Kane, Roksanda and more.
Last year, lots of celebs were in attendance including Delevinge, Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss, Anna Kendrick, Kendall Jenner, Emma Watson, Harry Styles, Victoria Beckham and Anna Wintour.
