The announcement was made by Stephanie Phair and Caroline Rush, respectively president and executive director of the BFC (British Fashion Council), entity that has described the Portuguese businessman as someone with a natural aptitude to cultivate both talent and commercial growth – a creative liberty alongside financial stability, which in turn generates innovation and enthusiasm inside and outside the industry.
