LUX Style Awards 2014: Nominees announced for Entertainment and Fashion Categories! [Press Release]

Film makes strong comeback; Music slips in output; Fashion & TV keenly contested

KARACHI: The Nominees for the 13th LUX Style Awards (LSA) were announced in Karachi this week.  The crème de la crème of Pakistan’s entertainment and fashion industries will be up for awards in 27 categories drawn from the four disciplines of Fashion, Film, Music and Television. Each category was judged independently by four distinguished Juries comprising experts and media from each field.

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).

The greatest debate was on the fast blurring distinction between Pret and High Street. The emergence of exciting retail space and steady dominance of Fashion Week has resulted in designers updating their high street lines. For the year 2013 the selection was made based on ease of availability across Pakistan, a fashion forward ethos to the collection and prominent showing at Fashion Weeks. The Fashion Jury decided to merge the two categories for the Awards next year (i.e for LSA 2015 when the work for calendar year 2014 will be under consideration) and to bring back the category of Best Bridalwear Designer. Selection of winners for Fashion categories will be decided in a second tier of voting based on portfolio submissions, by members of the Fashion fraternity in Karachi and Lahore.

SanaSafinaz and Sania Maskatiya dominate the fashion market as is evidenced by their multiple presence in the design categories.

Although each category can have upto but not more than five nominees, four are often listed in some categories as the jury did not find a contender up to par and did not vote in order to merely make up numbers.

It was an exciting year for Film with several young directors coming up with box office hits. Even so the jury upheld its standards and nominated a total of four for these awards of excellence. The categories of Best Actor and Best Actress had a full clutch of five nominees each. The Jury debated the wisdom of including a Best Director category and decided to honour in 2014 as a mark of encouragement, but from then onwards to let the films speak for the director’s work. The Awards in the Film section will be Jury based and not on box office takings.

The Music industry is lurching back on its feet from the fallow years of 2011 and 2012. Music Award nominations for the year 2013 were hotly debated and a wide range of music was discussed. The internet and radio are the mediums that drive this category and the Jury’s submissions in all five categories of Best Album, Best Video, Best Original Sound Track encompassing film and TV, Song of the Year and Emerging Talent will be put to public voting for winner selection. Music Video winner selection will remain a Jury choice.

Television Nominations in eight categories were divided in Best Satellite (Play, Actor, Actress) and Best Terrestrial (Play, Actor, Actress). Winners of these categories are decided via Viewer’s Choice votes. Best Writer and Best Director as combined (terrestrial and satellite) categories each are decided by the TV Jury. It is a reflection on the robustness of the TV industry, that the nominees in this section were evenly divided amongst all the top entertainment channels.

The LUX Style Awards for excellence in Fashion Film, Music and Television will be held later this quarter and aired nationally on the ARY network.
