Luella Bartley

I love, for the second year running, the renamed Isabella Blow award. It’s great that such an inspiring, revolutionary and memorable person is recognised in this way.

I’m pleased that Luella Bartley won the Designer of the Year Award. Her latest collections have wooed me more than ever. A mesmerising mix of acidic/pastel shades that are feminine and girly with an edginess and coolness that remains ever Luella.
