Happy New Years Eve! Today the Queen announced her Christmas presents to key members of the British empire and yet again she has chosen to honour the fashion industry. It's been a difficult year for London Fashion Week as it fought for it's place in the schedule so fitting that Hilary Riva, chairman of the British Fashion Council, should be honoured with an OBE.
Anya Hindmarch too has been awarded an MBE alongside Nicky Kinnaird of Space NK. Interior designer Kelly Hoppen has also been awarded an MBE for services to interior design. Earlier this year Anna Wintour was presented with an OBE.
