The global fashion group was selected as Highly Recommended for the Retailer of the Year category at the awards ceremony held by the publication Retail & Leisure Industry
AWWG, global fashion group for the Pepe Jeans London, Hackett and Façonnable brands, celebrated its Highly Recommended accolade at the 2021 RLI Awards, held yesterday evening at the new landmark hotel, ‘The Londoner’ in Leicester Square, London.
The category, judged by a panel of industry experts, sought to highlight the retailers believed to be world-class operators across all facets of the business: these included delivering exceptional growth, adaptation and transformation of their brand to reflect evolving industry trends.
Commenting on the prize, Marcella Wartenbergh AWWG CEO said, “We see this honor as recognition for all our effort and hard work and a nod that we are heading in the right direction. I am fortunate and grateful to have a team behind me that has shared that passion, drive and expertise to make that happen. We will continue to enrich the fashion industry, maintaining our efforts from the past few years and taking those learnings to produce beautiful garments that adapt to our new way of living.”
Joined by other professionals in the retail and leisure industry, the black-tie event was an opportunity to recognize and applaud some of the most successful companies and campaigns over the course of the past year. The awards took the form of a hybrid format, with those unable to attend in-person connecting via a high-tech streaming facility.
“As for all of us in the industry, this year has been a difficult one to navigate given the many twists and turns of the COVID pandemic. It is wonderful to see so many of us, here, in London tonight. That truly is cause for celebration”, Marcella concluded.
