The awards, which aim to “celebrate and reward brands, individuals and experiences that have demonstrated the pinnacle of excellence in the last year,” are a reflection of a luxury sector that’s worth more than £32 billion to the UK economy.

The Luxury Leader award was presented to Alison Loehnis, President of Net-A-Porter and Mr Porter, "for her interdisciplinary, creative leadership skills across fashion, business and digital.” And Manolo Blahnik was named Luxury Legend “in recognition of his 40-year career as one of the world's most influential footwear designers.”

The awards cover more than just fashion and it was a hotel brand, Belmond, that picked up the British Luxury Brand of the Year title.

But, as seen above, plenty of fashion names were called out and Mulberry was was named Luxury Maker Of The Year, while The Royal Ballet and Erdem picked up the title for best Creative Collaboration. Meanwhile The Vampire’s Wife was named among the list of Brands of Tomorrow (Emerging Talent) for its womenswear.
