Premium packaging partner to the global jewellery, gift and retail trades, Talbots, has scooped an accolade the international female-focused Stevie Awards.

At the awards ceremony, which was held at the Marriott on Times Square New, Talbots won the Bronze award in the ‘Best New Business Product’ category for its trailblazing Couture collection.

The Stevie’s is a prestigious programme of awards that celebrate women in business and shine a spotlight on exceptional achievements. Winners are selected by an esteemed panel of discerning judges and only those with the highest points scores will make it to the final.


Talbots fought off global competition to scoop the prize, with the judges praising, among other things, the value that the the west-midland-based company’s packaging adds to products, how it enhances the customer experience, its quality, style and functionality. The company itself was also lauded for its social media presence, website and other products.

Managing director of Talbots, Julie Fowler-Drake, comments: “We are beyond ecstatic with our Stevie’s victory and I’m so, so proud of what we’ve achieved with our Couture collection. Our bronze award win marks a fantastic end to a truly remarkable year for Talbots, which has seen us launch beautiful new packaging collections, roll out an online and next day delivery service, expand premises and grow our dedicated account management team”.

She continues: “Much consideration and effort has gone into developing our Couture collection so to be internationally recognised is an accolade we’re extremely proud of. We’re continually introducing new colour and shape variations for Couture and our Stevie Award confirms our belief that packaging should always reflect customer needs and stay true to emerging design trends and aesthetics”.
