Triumph has been honoured as the best brand in the lingerie industry by members of Associated Independent Stores (AIS).
AIS is a buying group of independent department stores with 250 members running 600 outlets.
The AIS Supplier of the Year Awards took place at a buying meeting this week, with Triumph scooping the top prize in the lingerie category. Eveden Group, representing Fantasie and Freya came second, with Playtex in third place.
In the legwear category, Gipsy came first, followed by Charnos and Pretty Polly.
La Marquise Lingerie, distributed by Lamatex, scooped a Best Newcomer Award.
The AIS awards are voted for by lingerie buyers at hundreds of department stores, who judge brands not only on their products, but also on quality and customer service.
“No matter how large or small the brands are, they compete on an equal footing,” said a spokesperson for AIS.
