HINDMARCH AT THE BFC: The British Fashion Council has named accessories designer Anya Hindmarch as a non-executive director, the organization said Monday. Hindmarch replaces Hilary Riva, who stepped down from the role in October. Before that, Riva had served as chief executive officer of the BFC since 2005. Hindmarch will sit on the board alongside Harold Tillman, chairman of the BFC; Caroline Rush, ceo; Simon Ward, chief operating officer, and Chris Inman, treasurer.

Tillman said in a statement: “Anya...brings with her huge experience from both the design and retail sector and will be invaluable as we move forwards with our future plans.”

Hindmarch added: “I am looking forward to...being able to contribute to such an innovative and prestigious body.”

The appointment is the latest accolade for Hindmarch, who this month was named an ambassador for Britain’s coalition government, charged with promoting the U.K. in overseas markets.
