Finding the right corporate uniform for your staff can be difficult. There are many factors to contend with. Demanding bosses and fussy colleagues are not the least of your concern, and then there’s the pressure of making sure the uniform matches the job role, projects the brand image and stands the test of time. Keeping this all in mind whilst deliberating the overwhelming range of options can get a little stressful. Hence our advice of the week: ‘try before you buy’!
We were delighted to receive these great photos from one of our valued corporate wear customers Village Voices based in Buckinghamshire.
This 70 member women’s community choir travel the length and breadth of the country and perform a range of music styles from all era’s.
We were very happy to hear from them again this year and supply their corporate uniforms of striking red blouses for a matching corporate image throughout the choir.
We wish them all the best for their next tour!
Hot on the trends this month, the new corporate uniform this season is the shift dress, a simple design but packs in a lot of impact in the office. We are launching four brand new dresses this April ranging from classic designs to quirky modern chic styles, something for everyone to feel comfortable and confident in.
These are great alternatives to the two piece suit and ideal to keep cool this summer. We have matching men’s two piece suits which will easily coordinate with ladies office wear styles.
For further information on our corporate uniforms, speak with our corporate wear department to sample these great new items with free of charge collection and delivery – we look forward to hearing from you!
Hot off the press this month in the world of fashion, the winner of the 2012 BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund has just been announced. Chaired by Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman, the winner announced was Jonathan Saunders, a Scottish born designer who is renowned for colourful prints and striking designs.
Beating off tough competition including Richard Nicoll, Zoe Jordan and Meadham Kirchhoff, Saunders wins a £200,000 cash prize and a bespoke mentoring programme to help him achieve his business goals over the coming 12months.
Saunders has recently been quoted “His recent collections have shown that he is a designer who can provide beautiful clothes that women enjoy wearing” – a great position to be in we feel as this is one of the main reasons we put so much into our own corporate uniform collections, so our wearers enjoy and feel great in what they are wearing.
All our corporate uniforms help you shine in your workplace so choose correctly and feel as great as any model currently does wearing a Saunders invention on the catwalk.
Call Charlotte on 01922 70 99 22 to find out which collection will shine for your staff.
Anyone interested in the history of the corporate uniform should get themselves to The National Maritime Museum in London over the summer.
The museum has over 7000 corporate uniform items – one of the biggest collections we know of. Highlights include a captain’s full dress coat of the same 1774 pattern worn by Captain Cook, and three coats belonging to Lord Nelson including the uniform he was wearing when fatally wounded at Trafalgar.
There is also a superb example of one of the first Royal Navy corporate uniforms.
Anyone with an interest in the history of uniform design and manufacture, as well as more broadly in dress codes and fashions since 1600, should give it a visit!
