We love a bit of national pride here at My Fashion Life and nothing excites us more than when the work of British brands is honoured, which is why the Walpole Awards, which recognise brands that exemplify British talents, mean so much to us.
Mulberry was honoured in the British Luxury Overseas category (Emma Hill is pictured above with the prize) while Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen won the British Luxury Design Talent award and Victoria Beckham was awarded the Emerging British Luxury Brand.
Mr Porter won the Best British Luxury Brand Online prize, beating both Harrods and Agent Provocateur, which in itself is an achievement.
“This year’s award winners represent the very best of luxury talent and we are delighted to be able to recognise their outstanding achievements,” CEO of Walpole Julia Carrick said. “The British Luxury industry continues to perform exceptionally well and has grown significantly, with London now the third largest international luxury market in the world.
“Through incredibly challenging economic times, the luxury sector is showing great resilience and we are confident that it will continue to flourish.”
