However my ultimate FAVOURITE thing at the awards was X Factor winners Little Mix in Scottish designer Hayley Scanlan's designs. Having worked with and promoted Hayley over the years, I have loved her work since she graduated from Dundee art school Duncan of Jordanstone and as you can see from previous posts, really back her as potentially the next Holly Fulton.
The way in which she has diffused the main Hayley Scanlan line into an already successful sister label (whilst having newborn twins might I add) is really credible, and shows the sheer determination and talent this Scots designer has. Little Mix's Jesy and Leigh-ann are perfect models for this collection and no doubt we will see high street-alikes this summer....
