NatWest UK Fashion &Amp; Textile Awards 2014: The Shortlist

The shortlist for the NatWest UK Fashion & Textile Awards 2014 has been confirmed! The awards will celebrate leading designers, brands and emerging talent at a gala event on 22 May in East London.

The judging panel, led by Hilary Alexander OBE, picked the following nominees from a record number of entries.

Speaking about her role, Alexander said she was "delighted and honoured to chair the judging panel for the NatWest UK Fashion & Textile Awards this year."

She added, "The quality of the entries was remarkable, demonstrating the depth and variety within our fashion industry, from the smallest, most original new companies run by a handful of creatives, to vast manufacturing complexes with hundreds of years of history behind them."
