The Drapers Independents Awards are in its 26th year and are designed to highlight and celebrate the best of independent fashion retailing and the independent sector. The awards will take place on 14th September 2016 at The Brewery London.
The brands in the Wacoal Group have already won many plaudits and the company has won Supplier of the Year at Stars Best Shop Awards in 2014 and 2015 as well as Cosmopolitan Fashion Award and British Plus Size Awards (Best Lingerie Brand) both in 2015.
Ann-Marie Manley, Head of Marketing for Wacoal Europe said: “We are delighted that Wacoal and Fantasie have been named as finalists in the Drapers Independent Awards, having two of our brands shortlisted is fantastic. We really value our independent retailers and their strength and we’re pleased that our sales remain positive with them. The reaction to the new Wacoal ranges has been brilliant and sales for Fantasie having increased YoY, so it’s great that we are being recognised for these achievements.”
