19 Mar. 2012
VOO BERLIN WINS FIRST SUPER STORE AWARD BY FARFETCH.COMLast week Berlin’s concept store Voo was honored with the first Super Store Award hosted by London-based e-commerce hub Farfetch.com. The competition, which is planned to be continued on a yearly basis, aims to showcase and reward the entrepreneurial spirit of young, independent fashion boutiques worldwide. With a mission to unearth undiscovered stores and bring their unique offerings to a wider style-aware audience, the initiative compliments the overall vision of farfetch.com and its expanding roster of progressive independent boutiques.
After enlisting the insider knowledge and recommendations from a panel of tastemakers from a variety of creative disciplines, a selection of finalists including Merci in Paris and Primitive in London were put to the public vote via the brand’s social media channels. Farfetch.com founder Jose Neves commented, “I am delighted this first award went to Voo. We are proud to be able to nurture such a new talent and look forward to giving them an online platform on which to thrive.”
