There are a variety of fashion events that make themselves
known to us every year.. Each event is different for many reasons, but
the closer we get to the big day of seeing one, the more eager we become.
The sheer excitement of seeing what kinds of goodies the designers are to grace
us with; the styles, the fabrics and what inspirations have been involved, most
definitely keep us intrigued.
One of the big events of this year is the WGSN
Global Fashion Awards; after being held last time in New York, is due to be
held at the spectacular Savoy, in London this November. The third annual
awards ceremony is hosted by the world’s leading trend and style forecaster;
who research globally to discover the latest trends to help designers and
fashion brands. This way it minimises brand investment loss and maximizes their
potential to succeed with what they sell. WGSN achieve this by extensive analysis
of all current and future style trends, giving their customers the tools
to create successful products and services to their shoppers.
The different awards fall into three categories,
designer individual, designer team and store design.
Some of the categories include:
Best Future Designer
