On 3 December, I attended the British Fashion Awards ceremony,
which was held at the architecturally beautiful, London Coliseum.
The incredible creative talents, honoured that evening, were
certainly deserving of all recognition and praise.
For me, the highlight of the evening was
the acceptance speech given by
who received the
Women’s Designer of the Year Award
Inventive. Fearless. Enigmatic …
his collections are eagerly anticipated
and are the highlight of London Fashion Week.

Christopher and Tammy Kane
as business partner, protector, cheer-leader, confidante
the 31 year old Scottish designer
has achieved celebrated international status.
When presented with the award by mentor and friend
he seemed sincerely humbled, grateful,
a bit taken aback, even a bit shy,
and of course very pleased, very happy.

His sister Tammy was unable to attend,
remaining at home because her daughter was unwell.
Mr. Kane accepted the award in honour of his
sister, niece and Donatella Versace:
clearly the trio of women who have
positively and significantly impacted his life.
Congratulations Christopher Kane!
