The Habit Fashion Gala is organized by Swedish fashion magazine Habit Sko&Mode, an industry icon since 1961. The Gala provides a way to reward and encourage merchants and retailers in the fashion world, both big and small. The event is preceded by comprehensive analysis by a 60-strong panel of judges, and public nominations are also included to encompass a wider perspective.
We are pleased to share that the three finalists in each of this year's thirteen categories included a whopping four Vaimo clients! Dr. Denim (Denim Supplier of the Year), Fjällräven (Sustainability of the Year, Sports Supplier of the Year), Filippa K (Supplier of the Year), and Naturkompaniet (Omnichannel of the Year).
Naturkompaniet scooped up the award for Omnichannel of the Year, and Filippa K received the Supplier of the Year award. The Vaimo headquarters in Stockholm are rumbling today with cheers and possibly some tears of pride. Congratulations to Naturkompaniet and Filippa K for their efforts!!!
