The British Fashion Council released their shortlist for the reputable 2012 British Fashion Awards less than half an hour ago. There's little surprise at the nominees listed below; all have a solid following within the fashion industry and are more than deserving of the awards. I'm rooting for my favourite designers Simone Rocha, Jonathan Saunders and Christopher Kane to come out on top. Who would you like to see scoop an award this year? Unfortunately, we have to wait until November 27th to find out.
