The 41-year-old picked up the coveted award at the glittering reception held at Claridge's Hotel Wednesday night, Contactmusic reported.

The designer admitted that she struggles to juggle between her personal and professional life, but hopes to prove women everywhere that they can succeed in the industry.

"Honestly, it's not easy and it's silly to pretend that it is... I lose it sometimes. If I've had four hours' sleep because I was at something late and up early with the kids, then I am not a particularly good mum and not a particularly good colleague at work," she told Harper's Bazaar.
