The Bridal Buyers Awards which celebrates excellence in bridal retail, design, and manufacturing took place in Harrogate International Centre last week. A host of recognisable names snapped up awards including Jenny Packham who was named Best British Bridal Designer whilst Ian Stuart was awarded for special contribution to the industry.
Best student designer was won by eighteen year old James Scarah of Hull College of Art and Design. The award was sponsored by Ian Stuart who told the bridal industry “you must employ students – we desperately need new blood.”
