Footwear favourite Sophia Webster has been awarded the Fashion Forward prize for autumn/winter 2014 and spring/summer 2015.

The prize includes a cash sum to put towards a catwalk show or presentation, as well as business support from the British Fashion Week.

Alongside Webster, J JS Lee and Nasir Mazhar have also been honoured with the accolade.

“Jackie, Nazir and Sophia have come through the ranks and couldn’t be more deserving of this level of recognition,” said BFC chief executive Caroline Rush. “Each of them has a very distinctive design aesthetic; their visions very different from one another. However, together they very much share the limelight that is shining on London right now.”

Previous winners include big names, such as Henry Holland and Mary Katrantzou.
