The stage is set for the top 3 brands, designers, boutiques and bloggers across 17 categories to vie for the top spot at the Grazia Style Awards, the celeb-studded annual fashion extravaganza taking place on Tuesday, March 25 at the MusicHall, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray.
Now in its 8th year, the event – which brings together the region’s fashion elite to toast the finest and the most influential individuals in the industry – is presented in association with Jigsaw, the international luxury fashion clothing retailer, and is hosted by feted British designer Giles Deacon.
A gifted and versatile designer, universally credited with injecting high-octane glamour into British fashion, Giles Deacon came into the spotlight at London Fashion Week A/W 2004. He was an instant hit and subsequently featured in the American, British, Japanese, Italian and French Vogue, as well as in W, Harper’s Bazaar, POP and i-D; bought by retailers such as Harvey Nichols, Liberty and Selfridges and bestowed upon numerous industry accolades: ‘Best New Designer’ at the British Fashion Awards (2004), ‘Best New Designer’ by Elle magazine (2005), and ‘British Designer of the Year’ at the British Fashion Awards (2006).
“We are thrilled to have Giles Deacon play host to our event; and we’re also very excited to have a new partner of Jigsaw’s calibre come on board”, said Claire Carruthers, Fashion and Beauty Editor, Grazia Middle East. “We look forward to welcoming everyone here in Dubai, as we honour the region’s vibrant fashion community and the exceptional individuals and brands whose talent, passion and valuable contributions over the past year have helped propel our industry forward. It’s going to be a truly memorable evening”, concluded Carruthers.
This year the Awards have put together a panel of industry experts that includes Emily Johnston, founder of the hugely popular style blog Fashion Foie Gras; alongside Elaine Lloyd Jones, editor of Grazia Luxury; up and coming British designer Ashley Williams; and Ahlan! 100 trendsetter Bong Guerrero; together with Grazia readers they helped shortlist the nominees in the 6 panel categories.
