Lingerie Insight is pleased to announce that House of Fraser’s junior lingerie buyer Isabel Keith will join the judging panel for the 2014 UK Lingerie Awards.
In her three years at the department store, Keith has worked across the intimate apparel department covering lingerie, sleepwear, hosiery and swimwear.
During this time she has overseen the introduction of both private label and own-bought brands, such as Stella McCartney, b.tempt’d, and, most recently, Marie Meili.
Commenting on her role as a UKLA judge, Keith said: “I am delighted to be a part of the judging panel for the 2014 UK Lingerie Awards, recognising the best in the business and awarding industry excellence."
Keith’s passion for fashion started whilst studying her degree in Textile and Fashion with Marketing at the University of Leeds.
After graduating, she undertook work placements at the Arcadia Group and All Saints before joining Figleaves.com, where she worked with large brands and assisted in the introduction of private label ranges Midnight Grace, Figleaves and Just Peachy.
Keith will join other members of the judging panel, including Coco de Mer managing director Lucy Witwack, in choosing this year’s UKLA winners in two weeks’ time.
Brands and retailers can now nominate themselves for accolades via the Awards’ website, which has undergone a revamp. Lines close on September 26.
The winners will be announced at a spectacular ceremony at the Freemasons’ Hall in Covent Garden on December 3.
