Mary has said that she applied before, and winning now feels so great. She added that every designer is very strong in their own ways, and that each of them wants the award for different reasons. She states that the designers are constantly pushed to raise standards, due to the great designs  around them, designs which inspire her to do great(er) things. The award will nurture the brand creatively as well as commercially.

The fund exists for 6 years by now, and  it provides the winner a bespoke mentorship for a year, as well as £200,000 to take the winner to a new step on the business. Previous winners were Nicholas Kirkwood, Peter Pilotto, Jonathan Saunders, Christopher Kane and Erdem, and look at the success they reached after the award! The first woman to be awarded, Mary totally deserves it for her creativity and joyous designs, with bold colors and beautiful cuts! Congratulations, Mary!
