Tsvetnoy Central Market won Best Store at the WGSN Awards in London last night. The awards, which recognise excellence in fashion and retail design, took place at the V&A and are run by style forecasters WGSN, recognising the role of retail design in commerce and the global fashion industry. Tsvetnoy, which has been open for three years, was designed by Russian architects Project Meganom, with retail interiors by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands and HMKM.
The international shortlist for the hotly contested Best Store category included London stalwart Harrods as well as Paris’ Colette, Evoluzione in Delhi and Kate Spade in New York. The awards were judged by a list of top industry names such as Livia Firth, Giles Deacon, Laura Bailey, Jeremy Langmead, Bloomingdale’s Brooke Jaffe and Eric Jennings of Saks Fifth Avenue.
The WGSN Award is the sixth award for the Russian department store, with Vogue Russia, Interior Design magazine and AIT magazine also recognising its innovative retail spaces.
