Over 400 luxury industry creatives, executives and influencers gathered to applaud Britain’s longstanding luxury companies and emerging talent for their outstanding work in the luxury sector both in Britain and abroad.

The Awards were hosted Awards by award nominated English actor, singer and songwriter, Laurence Fox and the following guests presented to winners across the ten different categories, David Walliams, Donna Air, Lynette Linton, Sally Uren, Jade Parfitt, Lady Kitty Spencer, Max Irons, James Nesbitt, Hilary Alexander OBE and Sam Heugham.

Among those honored were Iconic fashion designer Dame Zandra Rhodes, who was awarded with the Luxury Legend accolade for her 50-year career, while Dunhill were named British Luxury Brand, for their global impact in terms of sales and exposure in the last year, and footwear designer Manolo Blahnik received the award for Creative Contribution with The Wallace Collection for their critically acclaimed exhibition.

British heritage brand Burberry beat off tough competition from Selfridges, Net-a-Porter, jewellers De Beers and the Esteè Lauder Companies to win the Luxury with a Heart award, honouring the fashion house’s sustainable and environmental initiatives, while Smythson was honoured with the British Luxury Overseas award in a strong category that included Mulberry and Orlebar Brown.  The Luxury Leader accolade was presented to Fortnum and Mason chief executive, Ewan Venters, and Flowerbx won the Brands of Tomorrow Award for Emerging Talent.
