Lingerie Insight is proud to announce the shortlist for the four retail categories in the 2015 UK Lingerie Awards.
As our judges assessed the UKLA brand entries in Central London last week, a separate panel of experts judged nominations for the Department Store of the Year, Multiple Retailer of the Year, Online Retailer of the Year and Independent Retailer of the Year Awards.
The panel was made up of Wacoal Europe head of marketing Ann-Marie Manley, Gossard and Berlei general manager Elise Recour, The Lingerie Edit founder and APM Agency director David Finlayson, Bendon key accounts manager Emma Chapman and Panache Lingerie head of marketing Jennie Bianco.
The standard of entries this year was incredibly high, which made judging a tough task, and we would like to thank everyone who put so much hard work into contributing towards the nominations process.
We can now reveal that the retailers who have made the shortlist for the Retail Awards are:
Department Store of the Year
House of Fraser
Multiple Retailer of the Year
Rigby & Peller
Online Retailer of the Year
Coco de Mer
Independent Retailer of the Year
Coco de Mer
The UK Lingerie Awards is the mostly hotly-anticipated event in the intimate apparel calendar, with a spectacular party where the leading lights of the industry come together for a night of business networking, dancing and the big reveal of the UKLA award winners in a glittering ceremony.
Guests are also treated to a catwalk show, featuring the most innovative and fashionable lingerie collections set to launch in retail stores next season.
This year’s event will take place at the Freemasons’ Hall in London’s Covent Garden.
