Annual competition honors best apparel programs and suppliers
OMAHA, NE, USA, June 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The North American Association of Uniform Manufacturers and Distributors (NAUMD) has named Chase a winner of the 2020 Image of the Year Award® competition, an annual program that recognizes the most fashionable, forward-thinking and innovative commercial apparel designs and the businesses that wear them.
Chase—one of the leading financial services firms in the U.S.– was one of ten companies that received the best dressed nod.
Lands' End, Inc. developed the collection for Chase and it includes Women's & Men's washable wool suiting, blouses and dress shirts, dresses & skirts, custom ties and scarves, and more. It’s available to more than 30,000 employees who work in the consumer bank.
For over four decades, the NAUMD’s Image of the Year Award® Competition has honored uniform manufacturers, distributors and end users that have mastered the concept of fashion and function within image and market planning. Specifically designed to assist in identifying staff and professionals, image apparel can also extend a company’s brand, increase safety, enhance interior décor and improve employee morale. “As businesses seek a competitive edge, providing employees with a fresh look can be a cost-effective way to appeal to existing and new customers,” noted NAUMD President Steve Zalkin.
A planned awards dinner was canceled due to the health pandemic, and there was talk about scrapping the entire program until 2021, but that was eventually reconsidered. “So much of life had already been canceled. To void the accomplishments of those who produced great apparel and uniform programs simply did not feel right,” explained Zalkin. “So, while we can't host a physical awards night this year, we will still honor the achievements of 2020. Doing so is important and appropriate, and proof that better days are ahead.” All winners receive award plaques.
