"I am thrilled and completely overwhelmed to be awarded with this honour," Massenet announced. "I also feel humbled by it because during my career I have been privileged to have worked with so many brilliant and inspiring people, all of whom have contributed to the success of our fashion industry."

Massenet was granted the award for services to the fashion and retail industries in the New Year's Honours list last month. She wore a red Ralph & Russo skirt and peplum jacket with Manolo Blahnik courts, jewellery by Bulgari and an Anya Hindmarch crisp-packet clutch for the occasion.​
