Other familiar faces from the world of fashion to also be honoured include Katherine Hamnett and Raymond Kelvin, founder of Ted Baker. They both receive CBEs for their contributions to the fashion industry.

"I tend to pooh-pooh these kind of things but at the same time it's frightening how nice it is. It's seductive. And my friends have been adorable about it. I'm respectable at last," Hamnett said.
