The national winners were chosen from an outstanding 13,225 nominations and 34,066 votes. Fleur was among 22 winners who were crowned at a lunchtime celebration at the Venus Business Women Awards National Finals.
CEO and Founder Fleur Turner commented: “I am absolutely delighted to have won the International Business Award. To be formally recognised as an international brand in such a niche but competitive market as lingerie, is testament to the skill and commitment of our small but dedicated team. While our website has helped to break down international trade barriers with consumers, we have continued to develop direct relationships with overseas retailers and are now stocked in over 70 boutiques in 23 countries. The core values of the business and the quality and style of the product have not been compromised throughout our growth and we are extremely proud that a number of our early international stockists such as Barneys in New York have continued to work with us since our launch nearly 15 years. This award for me acknowledges the quality of both our product and our service and those standards are as a result of every drop of energy and inspiration (in equal measures) of everyone at Fleur of England. “
