The Dorchester lit up on Monday night with 400 of the best and brightest of the British luxury world, who came together to celebrate another year of innovation and entrepreneurship, and name the winners of the Walpole British Luxury Awards 2022.
Hosted by actress Saffron Hocking, the ceremony was attended by Lady Amelia Spencer, Lady Eliza Spencer, Oliver Proudlock, Afua Hirsch, Eric Underwood, Laura Jackson, Eunice Olumide, Miquita Oliver, Amber Le Bon, Francis Bourgeois and Lilah Parsons. C&TH cover stars Olga Kurylenko, Fola Evans-Akingbola and Amy Jackson were also present.
‘This year we received a record number of nominations from British brands at the forefront of innovation, craftsmanship, hospitality, design and sustainability who positively contribute to the evolving economic and cultural impact of British luxury globally,’ said Walpole’s CEO, Helen Brocklebank. ‘Not only do this year’s winners stand out for their exceptional products and services, but they are notable for their investment in the UK, local economies, employment, arts, and culture which is exactly what this country needs from business right now.’
A highlight was the standing ovation given to iconic tailor Edward Sexton, a key player in the history and reputation of Savile Row, who has just returned to the street with a new flagship store.
