Fashion industry recognised in Queen’s birthday honour’s

Several names from the fashion industry were among those on the Queen’s 90th birthday honours list.

Tessa Hartmann, who founded the Scottish Fashion Awards in 2006, received a CBE for services to Scottish fashion and textiles – adding to the OBE she was awarded last year. She said she “couldn’t be more delighted”.

“It’s very gratifying that the work we have done to showcase the Scottish fashion industry around the world has been recognised and acknowledged in this way,” she added.

Jess Jeetly, founder and managing director of the eponymous petite womenswear brand, was recognised for services to entrepreneurship.

Jeetly, which launched in 2013, allows customers to vote on which design samples they would like to see in the next season’s collection.

Aaron Benjamin Jones, founder of ethical accessories brand Fikay Fashion, was awarded an OBE for services to ethical fashion.

W Magazine’s fashion and style director Edward Enniful was recognised for services to diversity in the fashion industry and received an OBE. The Ghana-born journalist, whose mother was a seamstress, previously worked for Vogue in Italy and the US.
