As we told you back in late January when we shared the shortlist with you, it’s Brit Insurance Design Awards season at the Design Museum. Now the winners have been announced and while we’re not completely in love with everything that won like we were last year, it’s still a great collection of quality design. And, as you guessed it, Alexander McQueen took home the fashion category win (for his recent 2010 collection roll-out), which seemed a given after his recent untimely passing. Here’s the complete list of winners:
