Walpole British Luxury Awards 2016

POSTED 08 December 2016

On the 14th of November, we were delighted to attend once again this year the Best British Luxury Brand of the Year award organised by Walpole at the beautiful Dorchester.

During this fabulous evening celebrating the innovative British luxury brands, we met wonderful designers and influential people from the luxury fashion industry. The venue was incredible, as always, and so were the dinner’s three courses.

This year, the amazing Charlotte Tilbury won the British luxury brand of the year. The famous actor Stanley Tucci presented the British Luxury Award Overseas won The Soho House.

Michelle Emmerson, CEO of Walpole, said: “Last night we celebrated the creativity, craftsmanship and significant achievements of the British luxury industry, a sector whose goods and services are coveted around the world. The 15th Walpole British Luxury Awards recognise  the pioneering work of British luxury brands with new categories developed this year to acknowledge the manufacturers and the craftspeople who sit at the heart of our industry and are paramount to its continuing success.”

Guests enjoyed a drinks reception with champagne from Laurent-Perrier, a three-course seated dinner and after party with bespoke. Attendees received luxury goody bags including gifts from Johnstons of Elgin, Charbonnel et Walker, Harrods and The Dorchester. Rolls-Royce transported guests in style, loaning a fleet of luxury cars for VIPs on the night. Our thanks to The Real Flower Company for the stunning table flowers and winner's bouquets. 

We thank again Walpole for the nice invitation and for making the evening so lovely. We are already excited for next year!
