12th November – Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre was the specatular venue for the 7th edition of Stars Best Shop Awards. Hosted by ex-Strictly star, James Jordan, nearly 300 guests from the intimate apparel, swimwear and legwear industries met for a star-studded evening, sponsored by headline sponsor LYCRA® (a trademark of INVISTA) and organised by leading B2B title, Underlines Magazine.
The Stars Awards brings together the best stores, shops and e-commerce sites in the UK & Ireland with 27 leading brands nominating finalists for their success in retail.
Other leading sponsors were Pretty Polly & Aristoc, Wacoal, Anita, After Eden, Lise Charmel, Eurovet, Maidenform and DKNY.
Independent lingerie specialist Mish has been nominated for 3 prestigious awards this season, including Stars Underlines Best Shop Awards, the Western Morning News Business Awards and UK Lingerie Awards. The Mish team are known for their brilliant customer service as well as holding an extensive collection of on-trend lingerie and swimwear going up to a JJ cup, allowing women to look beautiful with all the support they require.
“It’s such a privilege to be nominated for all 3 awards. It’s already been such a great year for Mish, and a win from any of these would be a brilliant way to top it all off! We’ve been nominated for the Stars Underlines Awards a couple of times before, so we’ve got our fingers crossed that this will be our year,” said owner Michele Poynter.
The day after Stars is the annual BBC Children in Need Night (13th November) and the UK’s leading legwear brand, Pretty Polly, has created these cute Pudsey tights. The brand have committed to a donation of at least £20,000 to the charity and the tights are on sale now at leading retailers and stores for £8.00 each (£2.00 of every pack going to Children in Need). Show your support!
