A bit of a rabbit in car headlights, I had been sufficiently fortunate to get my on the job a ticket towards the United kingdom Lingerie Honours located by Lingerie Insight. An honours show unlike any other applauding the accomplishments of brands and merchants inside the underwear industry named ‘The Academy awards from the British lingerie industry’, I had been honoured and excited to go to.
Tension was high following the meal and also the deliberation over everybody’s mind was the outcomes. Becky and that i were sitting on a single table as Agent Provocateur and Royce Lingerie, both nominated for honours and you can have the anticipation! Agent Provocateur were granted the ‘Multiple Store from the Year’ therefore it was great to cheer together with them – congratulations!
Upon arrival I had been welcomed by sales director for that publication – the charming Andrew Martyniuk, with camera flashes and rather glamorous porters and complimentary champagne flutes within their 100s. The honours show didn’t dissatisfy around the glamour front – the Grade 1 listed converted chapel venue was simply stunning, it had been spacious without wrecking the intimate feel from the event. Carrying out a quick place of networking paradise i was escorted to some slap-up three course meal – think pretty tiny preparing salads and fillet steak.
Curvy Kate required home balance-coveted ‘Full Bust Make of the Year’ award last evening at Lingerie Insight’s United kingdom Lingerie Honours 2011. Nominated within an impressive three groups, the company happily recognized the award which remembers just what the brand does – lingerie for that larger bust. An active table of ten, the Curvy Kate team lost entirely pressure in the honours show, with Controlling Director Steve Hudson, Distribution Manager Seema Patel and Marketing Manager Hannah Houston among the audience.
As a result a brand new brand – only produced a couple of short years back – to win an award located with a national publication with competition from a lot of lingerie titans, don’t be surprised to determine excellent achievements from Curvy Kate later on.
June Kenton from Rigby and Peller was part of the knowing panel and it was also granted the honor of the ‘Lifetime Achievement’ award on her devoted and influential contribution towards the underwear industry within the last half a century. The British institution Rigby and Peller also accomplished the ‘Independent Store from the Year’ award pipping Bravissimo and traditional titans La Senza towards the publish.
Atsuko Kudo, the company behind Lady Gaga’s infamous red-colored latex gown which she used to satisfy the Full this past year were declared the ‘Most Innovative Make of the Year’. Like a brand which specialises in ‘Couture Latex Design’, it had been great to determine a cult brand symbolized in the honours show, plus an advocate for that subterranean fetish scene.
Figleaves.com won the ‘Online Store from the Year’ award, an accolade which reflects their great selection of dimensions, items, brands and brilliant customer support.
