WOW says it all!
We were really delighted when our founder Jennifer was recognised by British businesswoman, Jacqueline Gold CBE, for her success as a female entrepreneur in creating the Jennifer Anne petite clothing brand, and awarded with a prestigious #WOW badge.
Jennifer was one of three winners selected by Jacqueline after she entered ‘Women on Wednesday’ – a competition launched by Jacqueline in 2011 to celebrate the growing number of UK female entrepreneurs and businesswomen.
Women on Wednesday (#WOW) takes place every week and is run through Jacqueline’s Twitter page. When selecting the winners, Jacqueline looks for businesses that are interesting, that have strong brand values and that she thinks have potential to grow and succeed in their industry. She looks for quality products and services, well designed websites and entrepreneurs who demonstrate good business acumen and who have spotted a gap in the market that meets the consumer’s needs.
Jacqueline Gold says: ‘Jennifer Anne is a women’s online fashion retailer, catering to petite women 5ft 3 and under. Jennifer saw her own struggles with shopping for her petite frame on the high street and turned that into an opportunity to create a brand which filled this gap in the market. Jennifer’s drive and passion for her clothes sets this company apart. I wish her every success in the future.
For me, #WOW is all about inspiring and celebrating female entrepreneurs. My vision is for women in the UK to come together, celebrate their strengths, skills and fantastic businesses, and do all that they can to inspire other women to realise their potential.
The WOW community is a fantastic network which offers female entrepreneurs the opportunity to share advice, support each other, trade and most importantly celebrate their successes!”
Our founder Jennifer says: 'It is a lovely recognition to receive this award from Jacqueline who has achieved so much herself in the business world. Jacqueline is immensely supportive of female run businesses and was awarded the CBE in 2016 for ‘Service to Entrepreneurship, Women in Business and Social Enterprise’.
I am of course passionate about my petite brand Jennifer Anne. There has been such a lack of quality choice of clothing for the smaller woman. It is really rewarding to see how happy our petite customers are to have found a brand that puts them at its very heart with our range of beautiful, elegant and stylish clothes all designed and made in London.'
