The fashion A-list came together to shortlist five talented semi-finalist designers who will each compete to win the Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize.
Joining Yasmin Le Bon, Manolo Blahnik and Giles Deacon on the star-studded panel are milliner Stephen Jones, style icon Daphne Guinness, Vanity Fair’s contributing editor Elizabeth Saltzman and ES magazine’s fashion director Gianluca Longo.
After much deliberation, the judges agreed on their top five out of the 69 who applied for the inaugural 2010 prize - these include Hermione de Paula; Louise Goldin and Thomas Tait. The winner of the grand prize will be announced in November 2010! We’ll keep you posted.
