Congratulations, Harold Tillman! In a Buckingham Palace ceremony yesterday morning, the British Fashion Council chairman and entrepreneur was named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for his services to the fashion industry.
It is a real honour to be recognised in this way. The UK is home to some of the worlds leading fashion brands and I am proud to be associated with a number of them through the British Fashion Council and directly with Jaeger and Aquascutum, he said. I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to acquire these two wonderful British businesses with true heritage and be part of their revival.
Over his four-decade career, Tillman has been instrumental in making London a centre of the global fashion industry. We think the three new letters before his name are well-deserved indeed.
