Hello from Chicago!
We were blown away to see our store presented at the Housewares Fair as the GIA Australian winner - it was so cool to see the other amazing stores from around the globe - all incredible examples of retailing excellence.
We are beyond thrilled to announce that LUC. Design has won the Martin M. Pegler award for Excellence in Visual Merchandising held at the Global Innovations Awards in Chicago.
(Martin M. Pegler has been a professor for thirty years at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York in the Display & Exhibit Design Department. A leading expert in his field for over 60 years, Martin hosts seminars in the United States as well as in Latin America, Europe and the Pacific Rim. He has authored 80 books and his textbook, Visual Merchandising and Display, is used in universities around the world)
This is an amazing honour - and I was lucky enough to receive the award from Martin Pegler himself - such a huge privilege, and we are overwhelmed that our small store from Tasmania is now recognised as a GLOBAL WINNER!!
What an amazingly exciting experience and I am so so grateful to be the Gift Guide Australia, GIA, Life Instyle and Reed Gift fairs for this incredible honour.
