It’s an exciting time for five lucky designers as the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund committee has announced its short list for the 2013 prize.

According to WWD, Roksanda Ilincic, Mary Katrantzou, Nicholas Kirkwood, Peter Pilotto, and Emilia Wickstead are all in the running, with the winner to be announced in January.

Whoever ends up taking the cake will receive a high-level mentor for a 12-month run, as well as approximately $325,000 to help them upgrade their business.

British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman stated, “We have an incredibly strong short list of contenders for the fund. It is wonderful to see the impressive talent coming out of London that has reached a stage in their business where they can qualify for the prize.”
