Fashion news: Liam Gallagher to do womenswear, Mark Fast parties with the Queen and John Varvatos’ musical funhouse

Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher is all set to launch a womenswear line, under his label, Pretty Green, which already has a men’s range. Oh my. [The Cut]

Actually, let’s let Miss J tackle this one with a quote on celeb lines: “My biggest problem is if you’re going to hire a celebrity to design a line and if they don’t know what they are doing, then they need to hire the right person to sketch and oversee the line. It’s an insult to the fashion industry for people who have studied this craft, researched it, traveled the world looking for inspiration compared to someone who just pulls something out of their closet and changes the color.” [PopEater] Read more »

On December 9th, The British Fashion Awards 2009 will recognize the most influential players in the British fashion industry. Among the nominees are two Canadians: Winnipeg’s Mark Fast is up against Medham Kirchhoff and Peter Pilotto in the emerging ready-to-wear designer category, while Todd Lynn is nominated in the menswear category with Graeme Fidler of Aquascutum and Kim Jones of Dunhill. Lynn, an Ottawa native who launched his own label of androgynous ready-to-wear in 2006, has worked with Roland Mouret and put Mick Jagger, Marilyn Manson and Bono in his bespoke leathers. Fast, a quickly-rising knitwear name, showed his third collection at London Fashion Week in September at a show that was surrounded in controversy after the designer chose to use a handful of non-size zero models.

Other nominees include Daisy Lowe, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Georgia Jagger in the model category. Winners will be announced on December 9 in London.
