Designer Christopher Kane Nominated for Fashion Award

If you read this crochet blog with any sort of regularity then you know that I’m a little bit in love with fashion designer Christopher Kane. The not-quite-3-year-old fashion designer does amazing things with crochet that turn traditional crochet styles on their head and just really draw me in. Like using cashmere to create a super-edgy-but-elegant biker jacket. So I’m happy for him that he’s been nominated for a British Fashion Award.

Fashion Designer of the Year

Kane has been nominated for Designer of the Year. That’s a big deal. He’s pitted against two other designers who provide tough competition for the award: Erdem and Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Burton made the designs for the Middleton gals’ Royal Wedding dresses so that’s the kind of tough competition we’re talking about for designer of the year. Wow.

Why Kane Should Win

I’ve just been so impressed with this young designer’s work and career thus far. And I’m hardly the only one. Five years ago he won the Young Designer of the Year Award at the Scottish Fashion Awards and he’s been adding up awards, attention and amazing collaborations with others ever since. But here’s a visual collection of why I adore his work:

Incidentally, I do like Kane’s non-crochet work as well:

2011 British Fashion Awards

The awards ceremony takes place on November 28th (which happens to be my kid brother’s birthday) so we’ll have to wait until then to find out if Kane walks away with the award.
