Friday, 24th June 2016
Uniform Reuse was this week at the Safety & Health Expo, the Professional Clothing Show and Awards ceremony, all hosted at the Excel centre.
It was a great chance to see many different exhibitors, hear from several speakers on the challenges facing the industry along side new innovations in work wear and see some great designs on the catwalk.
Having had the privilege to sit on the judging panel for the Professional Clothing Awards, it was wonderful to see all the winners and highly commended entries receive their prizes. A great evening, hosted by Sharron Davies MBE and Sophie Smith, was had by all.
Huge thanks go to Yvette Asbhy and her fantastic team at Director-e for putting on a great show and awards ceremony.
