21/11/2017 19:38 GMT

The Scottish Fashion Awards have announced this year's list of nominees, including Christopher Kane, Vivienne Westwood, Simone Rocha - and our very own MyDaily editor Sara McCorquodale.

Now in its 9th year, the fashion event will take place in London on 1st September 2014. Think an all-fabulous black tie awards presentation hosted by Laura Whitmore followed by a super glamorous Scottish banquet to celebrate and showcase the breadth of Scottish fashion and design talent.

The best bit? MyDaily's editor, Sara McCorquodale, has been shortlisted for the Scottish Communicator of the Year award.

The Secretary of State for Scotland, Alistair Carmichael, who will co-host the ceremony, said: "It's great to see year on year the commercial and creative success these Scottish designers, brands and manufacturers are having and it's important they are acknowledged and supported.

"These awards are now recognised around the world as the benchmark of success within the global fashion community and are without a doubt the most high profile showcase of Scottish fashion, design and textile talent in the country.

"They are respected around the world and judged by a panel of renowned and esteemed international industry figures and they provide an invaluable platform for emerging Scottish talent, textile manufacturers, and fashion's future leaders."
