Bridget Kearney, a native of Mitchelstown based in Kilkenny, travelled to London this week to attend the Oscars of the lingerie industry and to pick up her prestigious award at The Stars Gala evening ceremony at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London on Thursday, November 9.
Bridget and her team won the award following nominations from leading brands on the jury and customer votes.
The winners were chosen from a category seeking excellence in the underwear, swimwear, legwear and nightwear sectors
Bridget was thrilled with the achievement for her boutique, Belle Femme Lingerie which has premises on the popular shopping thoroughfare of Kieran Street in Kilkenny city and also boasts an impressive online store www.bellefemmelingerie.ie
“I am thrilled on many levels to win this award. Belle Femme Lingerie prides itself on its customer service to the thousands of women from all over Ireland that we fit for the perfect bra every year. The customer’s feedback is of course the most important to us but it is hugely complimentary to also have our work acknowledged by the experts in the business also.
“We know that we are good at what we do and we are delighted to know that the brand ambassadors that we buy from – the leaders in the field of lingerie – also see the merit in what we do for our customers every day with their products.
“It’s a double whammy to have won this award from both public votes from our customers and with votes from the brand experts. Without a personal service like the one we provide, these brands are only brands – it is when we take those brands and personalise them for each and every woman trying them on – that we get most satisfaction.
“We sell only the best and we know what our customers want. I am thrilled that we are being recognised for a service that we feel so passionately about,” says Bridget.
