Black on black on black. This is my highlight because, at last, I looked like I was on trend. I wear black every day, so to see it dominate menswear was a joy (Topman spring 14, pictured). It’s been a real treat to see on London’s streets a black varsity jacket, layered over an oversized black T-shirt, paired with black Vans.
The highlight for us was Havetolove (pictured) launching our own clothing and jewellery lines. We released our range of cashmere jumpers in January, and then in September started selling our jewellery collection, including our Havetohelp necklace, of which half the profits go to charity. We had been building up to it for a while and it took a long time to source everything, so it was great to have such a strong reaction to it.
My most memorable moment from 2013 was the news that Burberry chief executive Angela Ahrendts (pictured) is moving to Apple. It represented the respect Apple has for the knowledge of fashion and luxury brands, and coming from a company that almost monopolises the tablet market, it was a big gesture.
A highlight for me was when French luxury group LVMH acquired a stake in British footwear label Nicholas Kirkwood (pictured). LVMH is home to the most celebrated brands in the world and it’s great that one of the world’s most influential luxury groups has recognised true British talent and entrepreneurship at its best.
