Amanda Wakeley launched her signature label in 1990 and over the last decade and a half has developed an international reputation for designing supremely luxurious, elegant women’s wear and accessories.   She is the winner of several awards including three British Fashion Awards for Glamour.

Amanda Wakeley OBE was born in 1962, she is a self-taught designer who worked for Go Silk in New York before launching under her own signature label.
She was awarded the OBE in 2010 for her charitable work for breast cancer and her contribution to British Fashion.
