The much awaited 13th Annual Lux Style Awards (LSA) Nominations for Fashion and Entertainment 2014 are in and there will be much to speculate over until the official award function is held later this year. The Fashion Jury decided on Nominations for 10 Fashion categories. (Best Female/Male Model, Best Menswear, Pret, Luxury Pret, High Street and Lawn Designer, Best Hair and Make-up, Best Photographer and Best Emerging Talent).

Given the significance of bridal wear in the country and the increased weightage given to bridal fashion weeks in the past couple of years that has collectively led to a welcome change of more experimental and creative bridal fashion, LSA will bring back the Best Bridal Designer category from next year.

On the other hand the demand for fast paced and quick access retail pret has made the distinction between pret and high street wear irrelevant to a great degree and as such the two categories will be merged in the next round of nominations for LSA 2015. 

The nominations for this year have been considered based on ease of availability across Pakistan, a fashion forward ethos to the collection and prominent showing at Fashion Weeks. Sana Safinaz and Sania Maskatiya have each dominated with four and three nominations respectively which is no surprise given their aggressive stance in commercial retail fashion that is the need of the time.

The Emerging Talent category is always exciting and this year brings fresh names to the forefront. Take a look at the complete list of fashion nominees for the year of 2013.
