Designer of the Year - Luella Bartley

Another NLYM favourite triumphed at the British Fashion Awards - Luella Bartley picked up the Designer of the Year Award. Any regular readers will be aware of how much I love Luella - I popped into the shop on Monday just to cheer myself up - she inspires me with her use of colour and pattern as well as being one of the most influential designers in terms of setting trends on the High Street in the last year.

A former fashion journo for Dazed and Vogue, Luella Bartley launched her first collection in 1999, she opened her UK flagship store last year on Brook Street.
