If you don't know about Grace Wales Bonner, the half English, half Jamaican designer whose output is consistently contributing to the most intelligent and brilliant dialogues happening in fashion today, you should. Plain as that. Wales Bonner has been nominated for The British Fashion Council's award for Emerging Menswear Designer alongside FADER faves Mr. Hare and Astrid Andersen. These three nominees reside alongside fresh luminaries who were given nods in other categories, like the incredible Molly Goddard, Thomas Tait, J.W.Anderson, and Craig Green. There are also more firmly establishment designers in this year's mix, including Tom Ford, Burberry, and Stella McCartney. The winners will be announced Monday, October 23. Who else is quietly applauding at their desk?
