Paul must be delighted to learn that Stella has been cited and awarded the Order Of The British Empire (OBE) in the New Years Honours List published this weekend.
I haven't been able to see the detailed citation outlining the reasons for the award yet.
She's amongst a role of honorees dominated quite naturally by athletes and officials cited for their roles in the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games:
Indeed while Stella deserves an award solely for her contribution to the growth and success in the British Fashion industry it may also include acknowledgement for her part in designing the Team GB Olympic and Paralympic competitors outfits.
Paul, Nancy, Stella and the rest of the family were regularly seen at both the Olympic and Paralympic Games events cheering on the competitors.
Well done Stella.
