Brand & Lifestyle Licensing Awards 2022: the winners

The winners of The B&LLAs 2022 industry awards were announced yesterday at an awards event held at the Hilton Park Lane Hotel in London.

Hosted by Ed Gamble, the brand licensing community’s annual get-together was attended by 400 retailers, licensees and brand owners who shared in the joy as the worthy winners made their way to the stage to collect their trophies.

And, after three years, the ceremony was back in its rightful spring slot.

“While we are all very well aware of the current challenges and global upsets that fill our daily lives, it also good to reflect that as these B&LLAs awards recognise and reward achievements over 2021 – a year massively affected by Covid – of just how resilient the brand and lifestyle licensing sector has showed itself to be, forging a powerful connection with the public,” said Jakki Brown, director of Max Publishing in the welcome speech.

The grand finale of the awards ceremony was the Brand Ambassador Award, which was presented to Adam Bass, MD of Golden Goose, for his continued contribution to this dynamic sector.

The winners of the B&LLAs 2022 are:
