Here at MyDaily, we make no secret about our admiration - make that obsession - for Christopher Kane's fabulous creations, so we were to find out that he is the winner of this year's BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund.

The award, which is in its second year, includes £200,000 to develop Kane's business, as well as access to a stellar cast of mentors across the fashion industry.

The Scottish designer beat off competition from shortlisted designers Richard Nicoll, Nicholas Kirkwood, Osman Yousefzada, Peter Pilotto, Jonathan Saunders, E Tautz and Charlotte Olympia. All of those shortlisted were then invited to present their collections and future plans to the judging panel chaired by Alexandra Shulman, and Marigay McKee, Harrods director of fashion and beauty who will chair the mentoring panel.

Speaking to MyDaily, Kane said: "I am thrilled to be this years winner of the BFC/Vogue Fashion Fund, the timing is perfect, we have many plans for the business this year, the prize will allow us to see through those."

We think it's just a matter of time before Kane's creative business make the leap to global fashion brand.
