As well as serving as the governments newest trade envoy, Anya Hindmarch has just been named as a new non-executive Director of the British Fashion Council.
Hindmarch steps in to fill the (high, pointy, red-soled) shoes of Hilary Riva, who stepped down after five years guiding the BFC.
I am looking forward to getting involved and being able to contribute to such an innovative and prestigious body at such an exciting time for British fashion, Hindmarch said in a statement.
The designer, known for her classic handbags, joins Chairman Harold Tillman, CEO Caroline Rush, COO Simon Ward and Treasurer Chris Inman on the BFC board.
Anya will make a great addition to our team, Tillman said. She brings with her huge experience from both the design and retail sector and will be invaluable as we move [forward] with our future plans.
