Roland Mouret named Artist of the YearSaturday, 19 December 2009 by Jackie Cawthra
Vogue.com reports that ROLAND MOURET has been named Artist of the Year at the 3rd edition of the Français of the Year awards. The fashion designer beat model Noemie Lenoir and stylish actress Lou Doillon to win the accolade which, voted for by more than 4,000 people online, recognises the best talent in the UK's French community.
"I am delighted and honoured to win this incredible award. I have always held France very close to my heart, despite being a UK resident. For instance I always show my collections in my native country. As everyone knows, us French are sometimes considered too proud but winning Français of the Year, I think makes me justifiably so!" Roland said.
Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye, chief executive officer of Liberty, was given the accolade of Businessman of the Year.
