NEWS| Good luck to Jennifer Morris at the Scottish Fashion Awards 2012

The Scottish Fashion Awards 2012 ceremony will be taking place this evening and we wish Vauxhall Fashion Scout designer Jennifer Morris the best of luck! 

The designer is up for the ‘Scottish Young Designer of the Year’ award at this year’s Scottish Fashion Awards. The ceremony, which takes place at The Clyde Auditorium in Glasgow and is hosted by Alexa Chung, acknowledges influential Scotish fashion figures and acts as a platform for emerging Scottish designers.

The nominations for the Scottish Young Designer of the Year award, sponsored by Scottish Fashion Council, are as follows:

1. Obscure Couture

2. Isolated Heroes
3. Graeme Armour
4. Hayley Scanlan
5. Jennifer Morris
6. Rebecca Torres
7. Marc Ross

We spoke to Jennifer, an LCF graduate who showcased her AW12 collection at Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s exhibition, last month following her nomination. She gave us exclusive shots from her studio and described the potential of winning the ‘Scottish Young Designer of the Year’ award as affirming “all the hard work and long hours that have been put in so far are worth it and just part of the journey towards establishing my name within the fashion industry” (read the full post here).

Good luck for tonight Jennifer – regardless of whether you win the category, it’s still an outstanding achievement to even be nominated.
