Design of the Decade

We’re looking for the next Professional Clothing Awards winners. Could it be you this year? Experience the excitement of the most innovative design within the textile industry. We’re calling everyone from the professional clothing industry, including previous winners, to submit their best ever design from the last 10 years. This outstanding array of celebrated designs will be revealed on the catwalk and culminate in one talented individual receiving this most coveted award: ‘Design of the Decade’. This will be an exciting opportunity for your business to put forward one outstanding design from the last 10 years. We know this will be a challenge with so many exceptional pieces to choose from. The event will take place at the five star Montcalm Hotel, Marble Arch, London, 19th June 2019. The venue will be overflowing with people and companies from around the world, celebrating the hard work and dedication that has evolved this unique industry in to what it is today, blending workwear, PPE, business wear, corporate clothing, safety wear, footwear, uniforms, textiles, trims and accessories under the single banner of the professional clothing industry. Launched in 2009, The Professional Clothing Awards is an annual event attracting well-known celebrity hosts. It recognises the industry’s latest innovations and achievements with a mouth-watering three-course à la carte dinner, a glamorous awards ceremony, memorable speeches from some of the most outstanding industry leaders and a LIVE fashion show. For our 10th anniversary, we have a special roaring 1920s theme – so dress to impress! Today, the awards extend globally, welcoming buyers and suppliers from as far as Australia, Sri Lanka, Thailand and across Europe with awards touching every area of the industry from fabric technology innovation, design, and PPE to individual buyer recognition awards. Here is a selection of last year’s winners: MASCOT winning PPE Innovation of the year 2018 for their MASCOT Advanced range. Hunter winning Best Managed Major Contract for their work with Virgin West Coast Trains Corporatewear and Workwear. Natasha Grice winning Woman of the Year 2018. Cliff Jennings winning Man of the Year 2018. We also have a competition directed exclusively at students: PCA Vision 2019 is an international student design award that challenges students of fashion, textiles and design from across Europe. We are again seeking the next bright thing to bring the working garments of the future to life. Here at director-e we cannot wait to welcome all the amazing winners of the last 10 years back for this special and unique event.
