Emma Hill of Mulberry Wins Best British Luxury Brand at Warpole Awards
Who would win in a fist fight? Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, or Mulberry? Thankfully this is a far cry from how Walpole determines the Best British Luxury Brand. Last night the award was presented to Emma Hill of Mulberry, naming her brand this year’s reigning champ.

Defeating brands like Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney, Mulberry took home the prize of Best British Luxury Brand at last night’s Warpole Awards. Represented by the British luxury industry, Emma Hill was presented with the award at a ceremony held in London.
The title of Best Luxury Brand Online was given to Burberry and after receiving high marks on NYU’s Digital Index for the second year in a row, it is not surprising the British brand welcomed additional recognition for their superior online presence.
Other awards included the Best Emerging British Luxury Brand, which was given to swimwear label Orlebar Brown, and Medals of Excellence that were presented to Great Britain Olympians Katherine Grainger and Jonnie Peacock.
This year England has received many regards when it comes to fashion and style. London was named The Most Fashionable Global Capital in the World due to events like Kate Middleton’s effect on high-street sales and the Olympics. And other achievements include Burberry’s top score on the Digital IQ Index and Selfridges boasting the World’s Largest Men’s Shoe Department.
But at the end of the day, it’s refreshing to see a brand that loves its country as much as its country loves it back. Mulberry even wrote a love letter to England in the form of their magazine entitled Brilliant Britain to highlight all of the undiscovered peculiarities their country has to offer.
