The Queen’s Honours List for 2010 has been announced and includes honours for Luella Bartley and milliner Stephen Jones.
Brit designer Amanda Wakeley, who returned to the London catwalk at September’s 25th London Fashion Week, receives an OBE (Order of the British Empire).
Luella Bartley – the British Fashion Awards designer of the year in 2008 – received an MBE (Member of the British Empire) for services to fashion.
Luella sadly closed down in shock news in November – here’s hoping the nod from Her Maj helps her find new backers for one of our fave labels.
(Pssst – you can still grab soon-to-be-collectors’-items Luella pieces at up to 60% off at Luella’s website.)
