Influential swimwear buyer Jo Dennis has confirmed that she will join the prestigious judging panel for the 2014 UK Lingerie Awards.
Dennis, a director at The Simply Group, will decide on the finalists and winners of this year’s Awards alongside Coco de Mer managing director Lucy Litwack and House of Fraser junior lingerie buyer Isabel Keith in central London next week.
Together with her husband, Dennis has headed up The Simply Group for the past 11 years. They run six Simply online stores, including Simply Beach, which specialises in fashion swimwear and beachwear.
