Luxury label Pistol Panties said it has gained new international stockists after taking home a gong at the 2013 UK Lingerie Awards in association with Fashion Forms.
The British company was crowned Swimwear Brand of the Year by a panel of judges at the event, which took place last December.
Deborah Fleming, designer and founder of Pistol Panties said the award has helped the brand reach out to a global audience.
“We have new international stockists who had not heard of us before, but were made aware of Pistol Panties through all the press that the Lingerie Awards generated,” she added.
“Winning the swimwear award for the second time has really affirmed our place in the worldwide swimwear market. It has built confidence with our existing stockists as well as built relationships with new international retailers.”
