As part of the prize, Kane — who designs both his own label and Versace’s Versus line — wins 200,000 pounds, or $318,000 at current exchange, to support his business, along with access to director-level mentors in the British fashion industry. Kane was nominated for the award alongside the labels Charlotte Olympia, E. Tautz, Jonathan Saunders, Nicholas Kirkwood, Osman Yousefzada, Peter Pilotto and Richard Nicoll. Last year, designer Erdem Moralioglu was presented with the prize.
