Visualsoft client Van Mildert picks up three prestigious Drapers awards

Visualsoft client Van Mildert was celebrating today after picking up several accolades at last night’s Drapers Awards 2009.

Van Mildert, who received a website redesign courtesy of our award-winning website designers and developers, picked up three of the coveted prizes at the 19th annual award ceremony which was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, on Park Lane, London.

Despite being in the midst of some of the toughest trading that the fashion sector has experienced for years, there are still many success stories, and Van Mildert is certainly one of them.

With stores based in the Metro Centre, Durham, Darlington, Harrogate and York, Van Mildert has prospered over the last year and these awards signify the hard work by everyone within the company.

Van Mildert’s Gateshead store was the first to be recognised when it picked up the Menswear Retailer of the Year award. Its Darlington store was next up, picking up the Young Fashion Retailer of the Year prize.

The biggest accolade for Van Mildert, whose eCommerce website can be found at, came later on in the evening when it won the coveted Independent Retailer of the Year award.

Visualsoft are delighted to see our clients work get recognised, and from everyone on the team, we would like to congratulate Van Mildert on their success.
