Award for one of London’s top interior designers

Interior designer Kelly Hoppen has received the Woman of the Year Award at a glamorous event at London’s Canary Wharf.

The Dragons’ Den star was honoured at the Women of the Future seminar, hosted by the businesswoman and motivational speaker Pinky Lilani.

After being presented with the accolade, Kelly said: “I feel very humble and honoured to receive the award. I’m a greater admirer [of Pinky] and to receive this award surrounded by inspirational women is a true honour.

“It is important for women to be able to lead the way in business and support each other and the Women of the Future network is immensely important in doing this. The award will take pride of place in my new studio.”

In recent years, Kelly has emerged as one of the country’s leading female entrepreneurs and a leading light in the interior design industry.

After making her name designing the homes of celebrities including David Beckham, she has gone on to present her own TV show, Superior Interiors, and was asked to join the Dragons’ Den panel last year.
