Ahead of last night's party we met up with Angela for a tour of the new shop on London's Sloane Street and to discuss the history of the family business that she took over from her mother and father and turned in to a global brand.
'It was important to take over the family business as I knew it could be so much more, it could still be so much more', revealed Angela yesterday. She also told us that it's her family that still inspire her today. 'For next season, I decided to mix things up and take a fresh direction. I wanted Missoni to be for everyone, for my mother and her friends, for me and my friends, and for my daughters'. Her daughters Margherita (pictured here with Angela last night) and Theresa are now her muses.
She also let us in on the Missoni family scandal that shocked the fashion world in the 1960s. Click here now to watch Angela tell the story.
