Fashionable MITIE

Strut, the corporate wear fashion experience designed by MITIE’s client services business, brought the latest lines in work wear to its clients in a stunning catwalk show. Developed to highlight the importance uniforms can have in enhancing a company’s brand image, the show gave clients the opportunity to see the difference the right uniform can make.

As specialists in five-star front-of-house service, MITIE’s client services team know the impact that the right first impression can have. Working with suppliers TM Lewin, Fat Face, Burlington, Brook Taverner, and Simon Jersey, they proved facilities management can be both fun and fashionable. This year’s event was held in Canary Wharf, where MITIE provides front-of-house, telephony, floor management, and porterage services to a number of clients.

Debra Ward, managing director of MITIE’s client services business, said: “Creating exceptional, memorable experiences, one guest at a time, starts from the moment a guest walks through the door into your reception. The look and feel of the uniform should match the image you want to portray - we know that getting the right look is crucial. Whether it’s a bespoke three-piece suit or a branded polo shirt and cargo pants, work uniforms are a very emotive topic for both the company purchasing them and team member who wears them. There is no one-uniform-fits-all approach to styling a company and the importance of getting it right should never be underestimated.”
