The Scottish Fashion Awards were held at the Science Centre in Glasgow last night. The star-studded affair, complete with tartan (instead of red) carpet, was attended by Scotland’s fashion elite as well as Antonio Berardi, Peter Jensen, Diana Vickers, Gabriella Cilmi and the ludicrously gorgeous Dolce and Gabbana model, David Gandy.
The awards went to all levels of the fashion talent in Scotland from Graduate of the Year taken by Jett Sweeny - who will her see her own designs be made and sold in Marks and Spencer as part of her prize - to Designer of the Year awarded to Jonathan Saunders.
Other winners included Holly Fulton whose signature graphic prints won her Young Designer of the Year, whilst Christopher Kane was crowned Fashion Innovator of the year. Singer Paolo Nutini scooped Fashion Icon of the Year and looked appropriately chic in a snuggly fitted suit with a skinny black tie.
And InStyle are proud to say that editor, Eilidh MacAskill picked up the Scottish Communicator of the Year award! Congratulations, Eilidh!
Sponsors of the evening, Swarovksi made a special crystal-encrusted clutch in, of course, the design of the Scottish flag and the awards were judged by some of fashion's toughest critics including Dolly Jones of Vogue.com, designer Amanda Wakeley and Grazia’s style director Paula Reid.
