It's not all about the designers; the models who wear their clothes are also being recognised. Up for the model prize are Georgia May Jagger, Jourdan Dunn and Malaika Firth.
The British Fashion Council also plans to present the BFC outstanding achievement, British style international designer and the Isabella Blow award for fashion creator awards at the ceremony.
The event will be held at the London Coliseum on 23 November and Swarovski and MAC are among the sponsors.
