Barber nominated for Best Store Design at the Drapers Awards

We’re excited to announce that our store design for the Simply Be and Jacamo flagship on London’s Oxford Street has just been nominated for Best Store Design at this years Drapers Awards. This is the third award nomination for this store design, which is already in the running for Fashion Retail Interior of the year and Best Use of Design with Technology In-Store at the Retail Week Interiors Awards – and it feels great to be receiving so much recognition for our retail design work from such highly respected sources.

Drapers Awards Finalist 2015

The Simply Be and Jacamo store is set over a spacious three-storey layout, in the heart of London’s most vibrant shopping street. The brand is known for stocking a generous range of sizes – with women’s clothes in store ranging from sizes 10 to 32 and menswear from small to 5XL.

In store there is a range of exclusive retail technology including a click-and-collect service and a ‘stay and play’ area, which allows customers to browse the Simply Be and Jacamo collections using hand-held tablets. There is also a personal shopping service and existing Simply Be and Jacamo online or catalogue customers can use their customer account details to make purchases in store.

The Drapers Awards are now in their 25th year and the awards ceremony will take place on 26th November 2015 in Old Billingsgate in London. Although the retailers, brands and suppliers winning the coveted Drapers Awards may have changed over the years, the core ethos of the event has not. Drapers suggest that theirs are one of the most highly respected industry awards, aimed at recognising and celebrating the very best in fashion retailing – so it really is a great honour to be nominated and of course we’ll keep you posted on our progress during ‘awards season’ in November.
