The Dressing Room team are very proud to say that we are currently celebrating another award win! We are thrilled to announce that our Store and Website manager Charlotte has just scooped the FAB (Fashion Association of Britain) Young Retailer of the Year at the BIRA (British Independent Retailers Association) Awards 2013!
The Gala awards dinner took place at The Four Pillars hotel in The Costwolds on 16th May and was hosted by the hilarious Gyles Brandreth. These awards celebrate the very best young people making their careers in the Independent Retail Industry. All divisions of the industry are rewarded and Charlotte won her catagory for the best employee in Fashion Business today!
The judges were impressed by Charlotte’s entry and how she has helped the store to continuously grow and develop, bucking the industry trend. Charlotte described her role at The Dressing Room as ‘not just a job, but a lifestyle’.
Deryane celebrated the achievement with Charlotte on the night and said ‘I am so pleased that there is an awards ceremony that celebrates the best young people in retail, it is a varied and rewarding career that is often overlooked. To be successful in this industry you have to be outstanding with people, have great numeracy skills, a flair for creative display with excellent commercial sense. Over the 7 years Charlotte has worked with me at The Dressing Room she has shown these skills in abundance and I am over the moon that she has been recognised for her hard work, skill and dedication to the business’.
Lots more celebrating to come we think! Well done Charlotte!! x
