Witty, wise and tirelessly energetic, British fashion-accessories designer Anya Hindmarch has always had an open mind and wide-open heart and is happy to share news of her latest enthusiasms. 

Anya has taken over an empty, post-pandemic street in London’s Knightsbridge and transformed it into Anya Village, offering the things she loves and believes in – from her famous handbags to sustainably sourced and produced items. Visit Pont Street, SW1 to explore the Anya Café, Salon, Village Hall, and shops.

She has also just published a book, If in Doubt, Wash Your Hair!, which is filled with advice on how to be happy. Her words are profound, defining the character of a woman whose life would be considered quite a challenge, even when she created a business at age 18, returning from Italy carrying a handbag that would change her life.

Five children later – three inherited from her widowed husband and two of their own – Anya continues with her global fashion-accessories business, with dollops of fun along the way and a CBE from the Queen.
