Here at Seraphine we are proud to have won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the category of International Trade. The Queen’s Awards, celebrating their 50th anniversary this year, is the highest accolade for businesses in the UK, and we are delighted to have been recognised with such a prestigious prize.
This award comes in recognition of our outstanding international business growth over the past three years. We are proud to ship our maternity clothes internationally to over 30 countries, and to work with distributors worldwide including Nordstrom & A Pea in the Pod. We opened the doors to our flagship US maternity store in New York last year, and have exciting plans for more on the horizon… watch this space.
The winners of the Queen’s Awards are chosen by Her Majesty The Queen herself, based on recommendations from the Prime Minister’s Advisory Committee, as well as a panel of industry experts, so it’s a great privilege to be chosen.
Seraphine founder Cecile said:
“It is a huge honour to receive this award and a tribute to how Britain nurtures and encourages entrepreneurship and international trade. I was born and raised in France, but the United Kingdom is where I chose to build my business because it’s the European country that has the most international outlook and a unique open minded business culture.“
This has been an incredible year for us here at Seraphine; back in December Richard Branson named us as the ones to watch in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 list, and we won the Paypal award for the Best Multi Channel Retailer.
Of course we couldn’t have done any of this without the support of our wonderful pregnant customers, both at home & overseas over the past 12 years.
So this award is dedicated to you and celebrates the wonderful journey of pregnancy!
