NEW LOOK dazzled in this year’s RETAIL WEEK RISING STARS AWARDS with a truly impressive clutch of nominations, commendations, and one sensational win. The brand’s Press Officer, LAUREN HARDINGES was thrilled to be named Marketing Individual of the Year – recognition for her unique contribution to a team that has delivered record-breaking levels of media coverage.
Supported by a roll-call of major brands, these annual awards are regarded as the “gold standard” identifying future leaders of the retail industry in the UK and beyond. Saluting determined, passionate professionals who go the extra mile in their roles and strive to make a real difference, they honour the very best of the best.
According to Lauren Hardinges, "“It’s hard not to be determined and passionate working for NEW LOOK – a great high street fashion retailer that continues to break boundaries and inspire consumer trends. I think I managed to demonstrate these feelings clearly during the interview process, as well as stressing the importance of keeping everything commercial and believable.”
Performance & Engagement Officer EMILY FELSTEAD was highly commended in the HR/Training Individual of the Year category. In total, NEW LOOK had six individuals short-listed across five different award categories this year – thus providing another splendid reminder of the wealth of talent that steers our dynamic brand.
The glittering awards ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House also provided a fabulous excuse to dress up. And our starry nominees certainly led the way in red carpet style, from LAUREN HARDINGES’s super-chic white pencil dress to the gorgeous geranium pink chiffon one-shoulder gown (by NEW LOOK, of course) sported by Social Media Executive DEBORAH HOLLOWAY, short-listed for Online Individual of the Year. Yet again, NEW LOOK’s girls looked good, felt great, and had more fun!
