Dr Who Star Karen Gillan among those short listed for Scottish Fashion Award

The five nominees for the Scottish Fashion Icon award have been announced ahead of this year's Scottish Fashion Awards which will be hosted by Alexa Chung.

The ‘Fashion Icon’ award sponsored by Capital FM is the only category at the prestigious awards ceremony that can be voted for by the general public.

Over the past few weeks the public have been logging on and voting in their thousands. Originally 10 celebrities, the list has now been whittled down to a fabulous five who will fight it out to be crowned Scottish Fashion Icon 2012.  

2012 FASHION ICON FINAL 5 ARE:

  • KAREN GILLAN (Actress)
  • TALI LENNOX (Model)
  • IAIN DE CAESTECKER (Actor)
  • LOUISE LINTON (Actress)
  • BARRIE JAMES O’NEIL (Singer, Kassidy)

Founder and Chairman of the awards, Tessa Hartmann said: “I love this year's final 5 fashion icons.

“This isn't just about style it's about individuality, your eccentricities and personality. Society is obsessed with fashion - it's a form of consumption, a commercial phenomenon, an identity maker. If that identity is a second hand woolly jumper then it says as much about you as it does about someone wearing haute couture - it's pure social reality."

She added: "It's irrational, fickle and volatile and that's why we're so addicted. So to have an established rocker, thespians, models and actors in there is a perfect representation of the extent of this wonderful social phenomenon. The question therefore is which of these identities will the public vote for - that's the interesting part!”

Paul Cooney, Managing Director of Capital FM, sponsors of the award category said: “This is an exciting time for Capital FM here in Scotland and I am delighted we are once again partners with the Scottish Fashion Awards.

"We have grown with the awards and this year’s event is shaping up to be the best yet. These 5 finalists represent the incredible glamorous and stylish talent that hails from Scotland. From Hollywood stars, to our most high profile TV personalities to music and the catwalk, it's a fine representation of global Scottish Style.

"What's even more exciting is that they're set to attend the red carpet on the night. Who wins is up to you and of course the Capital FM listener!"

Open to the public for the first time the event will feature nominee catwalk shows, performances by Dionne Broomfield and Tallia Storm and the finale exclusive Swarovski runway show, previewing for the first time in the UK the upcoming Winter 2012 ‘Kingdom of Jewels’ fashion and couture collections.

The Oscars of Scottish Fashion is now a firm fixture in the international fashion calendar with this black tie extravaganza held at the Clyde Auditorium on 11th June 2012. Attended by global fashion figures, designers, supermodels and industry leaders, they will celebrate the 7th annual event with glamour and glitz, joining Swarovski's 'International Red Carpet Calendar', which includes the Oscars, Golden Globes and Cannes Film Festival.

Tickets for the event are £35 and can be purchased from Ticket soup www.ticketsoup.com
