Browns York WINS Legwear Retailer of the Year!

Browns York was awarded the Legwear Retailer of the Year Award at this year’s Stars Underlines Best Shop Awards gala dinner and ceremony held at the Globe Theatre at London’s Bankside.


Stars is the Lingerie Industry’s only independent recognition of excellence in intimate apparel, swimwear and legwear retailing. It’s effectively the “Oscars” of the lingerie business. Last night underwear, swimwear and legwear specialists gathered at The Underglobe at Shakespeare’s Globe in London to celebrate the best stores, shops and e-commerce sites across the UK and Ireland at the 8th edition of Stars Underlines Best Shop Awards. Hosted by journalist and broadcaster Vanessa Feltz, 330 guests and over 100 finalists attended the star-studded evening, sponsored by headline sponsor INVISTA (owner of the LYCRA® fibre brand) and organised by leading B2B title, Underlines Magazine.

A total of 14 awards were presented and Browns York was chosen as the winner of the Legwear Retailer of the Year.
