Zodiac picks up four APEX awards

At the recently held APEX Awards, organized by the Clothing Manufacturers Association of India (CMAI), generally considered as the “Oscars of the clothing industry”, while Provogue walked away with the ‘Brand of the Year’ award in the Men’s wear category, Zodiac was a big winner with four awards, including ‘The Most Promising Brand of The Year’ for its ZOD! Club Wear.

Allen Solly and Gini & Johny took the honours in the Women’s and Kid’s wear categories respectively. Madura Garments bagged the ‘The Clothing Company of The Year’ award.

Zodiac Clothing Co. Ltd.’s (ZCCL) Vice-chairman and Managing Director, A Y Noorani, was declared the ‘The Clothing Professional of The Year’. The company also got the ‘Best Management Team’ award. The Zodiac campaign also took the award for ‘The Best Advertising Campaign of 2004’.

Sy Noorani, MD, ZCCL, "It is a very proud moment that our team effort was acknowledged by the apex body of the clothing industry. These awards reiterate Zodiac’s commitment to be a design driven clothing brand. It is more heartening because this is our Golden Jubilee Year."
