Jaeger chief executive Colin Henry has been made an honorary professor by Glasgow Caledonian University’s London campus.
The British retail boss was also presented with a lifetime achievement award at a graduation ceremony on Wednesday June 17 for his outstanding achievements in the fashion industry.
Henry, who is the subject of our Drapers interview in the July 25 issue, joins a number of past recipients of the award including Whistles chief executive Jane Shepherdson, Ted Baker founder Ray Kelvin and Arcadia chief executive Ian Grabiner.
In a statement, he said: “I am honoured to be considered for this award. Education in the world of fashion will always be the bedrock of the industry and I am thrilled to be able to support it.”
Glasgow Caledonian University’s London campus is situated on Fashion Street, Spitalfields, and offers MBA and MSc courses including digital fashion strategy and fashion business.
In 2013, it launched the British School of Fashion, a creative educational business hub.
