Anya Hindmarch, whose handbags are loved by the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Cheryl Cole and Olivia Palermo, has taken over the British Fashion Council role from Hilary Riva, who stepped down earlier this months after five years. Clearly Anya knows a thing or two about fashion - she started her handbag business at the age of 19 and now boasts a total of 54 stores world wide.
Harold Tillman CBE, Chairman of the British Fashion Council, said: “Anya will make a great addition to our team. She brings with her huge experience from both the design and retail sector and will be invaluable as we move towards with our future plans.”
We can’t wait to see what additions she brings – free handbags for all fashion journalists? We wish!
