Blog: Leonie BarrieFashionable New Year’s honours

Leonie Barrie | 3 January 2008

A number of prominent business leaders and entrepreneurs from the fashion industry were recognised for their outstanding achievement and service in the 2008 New Year Honours List.

Among them are M&S chief executive Stuart Rose, who has been awarded with a knighthood after managing to reverse a decline in sales and profits in less than three years. His knighthood comes 18 months after that of his friend and business rival, Sir Philip Green.

Hong Kong based entrepreneur David Tang, founder of the Shanghai Tang clothing company, was also honoured with a knighthood in the diplomatic list for his charity work in the UK.

CBEs were handed out to Richard Bradbury, chief executive of clothing retailer River Island, and Maurice Bennett, the owner of the Warehouse Group, Oasis stores and Phase Eight.

And fashion designers Jasper Conran and Karen Millen received OBE awards.

Congratulations to all.
