Motel wins at Drapers Awards!

Motel was short listed for the Drapers awards this year for short order/quick response brand of the year, so naturally we donned our finest wear (Pete in a tux, Claire in an Erica Dress and me in the Gina dress) and headed on down to Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London.

After the champagne reception we headed to our seats spotting the presenter for the evening, Lisa Snowdon, on the way to our table. Drapers magazine editor, Jessica Brown kicked off the evening with a speech about how tough this year has been on the retail industry and the successes being that much sweeter this year because of this.

After our 3 course meal, it was time to get down to the business of the night, the awards and the winners. The winners included, wrangler for best marketing initiative of the year, John Lewis women swear, Cardiff for best new department store/ department of the year, John for best larger etailer of the year and Liam Gallagher‘s(who was in attendance) brand pretty green for best menswear brand of the year. Soon enough it was our category, and the winner was described as “bang on trend, band on time”….and guess what? WE WON!!!!!!!!!!!! We got on stage, accepted the award (a rather heavy male turso), got a little kiss and a hug from Snowdon and our pictures taken!

We had a great night, go MOTEL!!
