The FW Awards Nominations 2014

So we have been talking about it for so long, and tonight the magic happens. The panel was assembled, the judges vetted, the votes made, the democracy that is FW has offered up our choices for the fabulous fashion year that was 2014.

Will Zara stay unbeaten as Best High Street Shop, will Topshop finally hand over the burden of being voted worst every year so far? Can I Live with myself for not nominating VB for anything, and will the judges turn awards night into the Thunderdome as they argue.

Thank you to my fellow judges and the effort and thought each of you gave this, the winners will be revealed on the 21st of June before I run off to party with another FW contributor.
