WGSN to launch Global Fashion Awards
Style and trend forecaster WGSN announced it has created the Global Fashion Awards, the first awards program to recognize and reward those businesses and individuals who are pushing the boundaries of fashion and setting the style agenda on a global scale. The Global Fashion Award categories cover all the major business and creative disciplines of fashion, including design, retail (on-and off-line), buying, visual merchandising, store design, marketing and ethical practice.“Over the last two years, the fashion marketplace and the fashion consumer have changed dramatically, fostering a hotbed of inspired innovation in creative development, product marketing and business operations across the industry and around the world,” said Susanna Kempe, CEO of WGSN. “At WGSN we want to shine a light on those businesses and individuals whose actions, ideas and influence have served as an inspiration for both the fashion industry and consumers in 2010.”The winners will be announced on November 10, 2010 at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. WGSN will be awarding honouree status to fashion greats from Americas, Apac and EMEA and fashion industry insiders and patrons from across the globe.“I was delighted to be asked to judge the WGSN global fashion awards! Anything that recognises design talent and clever retailing is key and to widen it globally will be fascinating as well as pioneering" said Nadia Jones, Creative Director for Oasis.” As Fashion trends and style ever increasingly spread to all parts of the globe at the same time, it is finally possible to have truly global fashion and retail brands. I am honored to be a part of WGSN’s Global Fashion Awards, which I am sure will quickly become one of the industry’s most auspicious and sought after accolades.”
