LONDON - London-based Canadian label Erdem is a winner once again at the British Fashion Awards.

Montreal-born designer Erdem Moralioglu won the Red Carpet Award on Monday, which recognizes a British designer who is creating global awareness of their designs in the media.

He was nominated alongside Victoria Beckham and Antonio Berardi in the category.

This is the second consecutive victory for Moralioglu, who won the New Establishment Award at last year's awards ceremony, an honour that recognized a particular movement in British fashion that is taking the industry by storm.

The Canadian-born designer moved to London to attend the Royal College of Art.

He moved to New York after graduation to work in the design studios of fashion icon Diane von Furstenberg before relocating to the U.K. to launch his eponymous label in 2005, known for its modern, feminine designs and vibrant, custom-designed prints.

Moralioglu has established a star-studded fashion following with the Duchess of Cambridge and Oscar winners Anne Hathaway and Gwyneth Paltrow among those who have worn his designs.

The British Fashion Awards are an annual awards ceremony organized by the British Fashion Council, and saw 16 awards presented to leading figures in fashion.

British brand Burberry received dual honours, winning both designer brand of the year and menswear designer of the year awards.

Christopher Kane was named womenswear designer of the year.
