Bio

Kelly Hoppen (born July 1959) is a South African-born British interior designer and author best known for being a 'dragon' on the BBC Two business series Dragons' Den, joining the show for the eleventh season.

As an independent 16-year-old, Kelly Hoppen was given the opportunity to design a family friend's kitchen. This modest commission kick-started one of the most celebrated careers in the design industry.

Kelly's ever-evolving style is underpinned by a subtly coordinated fusion of East meets West; clean lines and neutral tones.

Kelly is honoured to be the recipient of copious design awards and the proudest point in her career to date came in 2009, when she was made an MBE for her services to interior design. She puts her stamp on the homes, yachts and jets of private clients, as well as commercial projects.

Kelly is the author of seven design books and is currently working on her eighth book. The Kelly Hoppen brand has partnered with a select number of licensees to offer consumers a range of home products.

A dedicated supporter of good causes and the championing and nurturing of younger and older British entrepreneurs, Kelly is an ambassador for the Princes Trust and the Princes Initiative for Mature Enterprise.

Kelly is also a proud ambassador for the Government's GREAT campaign and works with UK Trade & Investment mentoring small and medium sized businesses.
