International Business Leader

Adrian Joffe for Comme des Garçons & Dover Street Market
Christopher Bailey MBE for Burberry
Guram Gvasalia for Vetements
Marco Bizzari for Gucci

International Urban Luxury Brand

Gosha Rubchinsky

My Pick: going with the safest and perhaps most obvious choice because I love the Adidas collab collections even though I’m not a sportswear kinda girl.

International Model

Adwoa Aboah
Bella Hadid
Gigi Hadid
Kendall Jenner
Lineisy Montero

My Pick(s) the Hadids of course! 

International Accessories Designer

Alessandro Michele for Gucci
Anya Hindmarch MBE for Anya Hindmarch
Johnny Coca for Mulberry
Jonathan Anderson for Loewe

My Pick(s): Alessandro Michele for turning Gucci around (Dionysus anyone?), and Anya Hindmarch because I love quirk.

International Ready-to-Wear Designer

Alessandro Michele for Gucci
Demna Gvasalia for Balenciaga
Donatella Versace for Versace
Jonathan Anderson for Loewe

My Pick: Tisci, hands down. No Michele here because his RTW is too out-there for me.
