The winner of the Designer of the Year award is Charlotte Davies of Curvy Kate.
Charlotte Davies prides herself on listening to customer feedback and technically assessing each individual range.
Evidence of this is shown through a new revamped pattern, which has been developed with new ‘upfront technology’. The fit has been praised by retailers for its rounded, forward projecting shape.
Further developments include the brand’s first strapless bra, which has doubled its predicted sales target – Bravissimo naming this bra its number one bestseller in June 2016.
Charlotte also spearheaded the brand’s first boudoir range for AW15. With minimal choice for women requiring sexy pieces in DD plus sizes, she came up with the concept for Scantilly – a fearless collection of lingerie for the curvaceous female.
