This isn’t the first time the British-born fashion star, who became famous as ‘Posh Spice’ in the 90s, has been honored for her contributions to the industry in recent years.
Following her Spice Girls days, she launched her debut collection at New York Fashion Week in 2008. Thanks to her ever popular designs, which have been worn by the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet and Eva Longoria, she went on to win the Best Brand prize at the British Fashion Awards in both 2011 and 2014.
