Lingerie Insight is proud to announce the launch of the inaugural UK Lingerie Awards, 2011, this September 7.
The ceremony – taking place at an exclusive, central London location – will be attended by 500 key individuals from the British lingerie industry, including designers, wholesalers, agents, department store and web site buyers, and the best independent and nationwide retailers in the country.
The event seeks to celebrate this year’s greatest creativity, design, business achievements and personal contribution. The winners and finalists will be the brands, retailers and individuals that have set the British industry in 2011.
A shortlist of finalists will be created by an online application process on LingerieInsight.com, and then judged by a panel of industry experts to select a winner in each category. All winners will be announced on the night of the party.
Kat Slowe, Editor of Lingerie Insight, said: “This awards ceremony for the UK lingerie and swimwear community is a long-overdue recognition of the extraordinary talent and hard work by the hundreds of professionals that make up this booming industry.
“It will provide a unique opportunity for individuals from all spectrums of the field to meet face to face, network and celebrate the year’s biggest success stories.”
Following the Awards, Lingerie Insight will publish a UK Lingerie Awards Special Report with its October issue, which will pay tribute to all the winners and finalists, along with pictures from the ceremony and thoughts from the industry.
The event will benefit from the support of Lingerie Insight’s parent company – ITP Publishing Group – the global publisher of multiple titles, including Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, Time Out, Grazia and Cosmopolitan in the Middle East.
