Three cheers for Anya Hindmarch who has just scooped The Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award 2012.

Hurrah!

'It is the greatest honour to win the Veuve Clicquot Business Woman award in its 40th year,' Anya says of the win. 'It is a very real compliment to be deemed to share some of the qualities of Veuve Clicquot herself who was clearly a brave and pioneering woman but also to even be considered amongst my fellow finalists, Helena Morrissey and Ruthie Rogers who are both brilliant businesswomen and lovely people.'

Of course, this isn't the first (or undoubtedly last) accolade Anya has been honoured with. In 2009, Ms Hindmarch was awarded an MBE in recognition of her contribution to the British fashion industry and two years later, she became a Non-Executive Director of the British Fashion Council. It's hard to believe that the lovely Anya started her business at the tender age of 19! She now boasts fifty seven shops worldwide, with a New York flagship opening earlier this year, and presented her first spectacular show at London Fashion Week in February [above]. And let's not forget this is the mastermind behind the hugely-successful ‘Be a Bag’ project - yep, Anya made it fashionable not to use plastic bags thanks to her iconic ‘I’m Not A Plastic Bag’, which launched in 2007.
 
'In a year that British fashion has never been under the spotlight more, Anya has proven that commercial triumph alongside pursuing a responsible business is more than achievable and it is wonderful to see such a shining example of business success,' says Christina Jesaitis, Senior Brand Manager of Veuve Clicquot said. Hear, hear!
