Today Natalie Massenet was invested as a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire by The Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace. Dame Natalie was granted the award, for services to the fashion and retail industries, in the New Year's Honours last month. To accept this prestigious honour, Natalie wore couture; a scarlet red wool crêpe peplum tailleur by British luxury brand, Ralph & Russo.
“Natalie is one of the most successful and respected entrepreneurs of our generation and has contributed in such a huge way to the British Fashion Industry; not only elevating the profile of London Fashion Week and its designers but also nurturing and championing new talent. We are beyond thrilled and honoured to have worked with Natalie on this momentous occasion.”
