Mad Beauty Triumphs At The Licensing Awards 2022

Among the delighted winners to be crowned at the Licensing Awards, held at a glittering ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House hotel last night (13 September) was Mad Beauty, winner of the Licensed Giftware Range, Home Décor, Tableware or Housewares Range category, for its Winnie The Pooh Bath & Body Collection.

“We have always loved the Pooh range and felt it delivered on all our goals of trying to make cosmetics fun,” Mad Beauty’s co-founder Julia Cash told GiftsandHomenet. “So it was tremendously exciting and very rewarding that our peers thought so too. It makes all the hours spent on concepts and design worthwhile.”

Last night’s event began with over 1200 guests falling silent for a minute to honour Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

In her opening address, Jakki Brown, md of Max Publishing (which owns and organises The Licensing Awards), commented: “While the news about The Queen was not unexpected, that does not take away from the enormity of the loss. She has been a huge part of all of our lives and contributed so much over her 70 year reign.”
