CLEARWATER, Fla. —StorErotica Magazine has announced the winners of its 6th annual soft goods awards.
Honoring the best from the intimate apparel portion of the adult retail industry, the honors were presented on Sept. 10 at the International Lingerie Show (ILS) in Las Vegas.
The magazine said nearly 1,000 guests from ILS were on hand to see StorErotica editor, Kristofer Kay, present the seven awards.
“This is the second year this allocation of the StorErotica Awards has been part of ILS, and it’s only helped add to the esteem of these awards,” Kay said.
He added, “We’d like to thank Micheal Moreira and Jeff Yunis of Specialty Trade Shows for graciously inviting StorErotica to be a part of their festivities once again, as well as salute everyone who attended and congratulate the winners and nominees.”
The winners were chosen online by StorErotica readers and editorial staff. This year, seven categories were presented, including mainstay categories such as “Lingerie Manufacturer of the Year,” “Dancewear Manufacturer of the Year,” and “Sexy Shoe Manufacturer."
A "Special Focus Award" and “Online Retailer of the Year” were also included.
“Compared to the toy side of the industry, intimate apparel is by far a more concise and specialized sector and the competition is always tough,” Kay said. “Seeing that newer manufacturers are being nominated alongside those veteran companies reflect not only where intimate apparel is headed, but just how resilient it remains.”
The complete list of winners follows.
Lingerie Manufacturer of the Year
Costume Manufacturer of the Year
Dancewear Manufacturer of the Year
Accessory Manufacturer of the Year
