Marketers and designers including Harrods, Burberry, Montblanc, Stella McCartney and Tiffany & Co. were honored by London-based publication Luxury Briefing at its 16th annual Luxury Briefing Annual Awards earlier this week.
Held at the Corinthia Hotel in London, the awards recognized luxury brands for achieving excellence in 2011 throughout various categories. The awards consisted of 11 newly-designed categories including best designer, breakthrough brand and men’s and women’s brand of the year.
