Though the 38-year-old couldn't be there in person to receive her award, but took to Twitter to share her excitement.

"Thank you WGSN, thrilled to win Womenswear Designer at Global Fashion Awards," she wrote.

The Global Fashion Awards recognise and reward brilliance in fashion and retail design across the globe. They are the only fashion awards that enable the winners to lay claim to the tag of being the best in the world in their field because they are voted for by a panel of industry specialists.

Other winners at the prestigious industry event included Charlotte Olympia for footwear and accessories designer and Kim Jones at Louis Vuitton for menswear designer.
