Yet another year has flown by but a whole lot has happened here at Marc Darcy. From awards to partnerships, celebrity wears and new ranges, join us as we cast our minds back to the memorable moments of 2019.
At the beginning of 2019 we announced our partnership with Championship football team West Bromwich Albion which continues to flourish into 2020. Shortly after this milestone we were awarded both the Gold Trusted Service award by Feefo and highly commended for our Groomswear collection at The British Wedding Awards. We also welcomed a whole host of footballers to our Manchester showroom including ex Manchester United defender Wes Brown.
During the second quarter of the year we launched our highly anticipated student discount which has helped introduce Marc Darcy to a whole new generation. Marc Darcy suits also featured prominently at The British Soap Awards worn by the likes of Coronation Street stars Charlie De Melo, Colson Smith and Sam Aston. Additionally we had a very special visit to our showroom from Premier League footballer Ander Herrera who took a shine to our Max suit.
The second half of the year got off to a great start as we delved into the Rugby world, securing partnerships with both St. Helen's & Leicester Tigers. It also saw the start or our taxi campaign with MD decorated taxis cruising around the streets of Manchester and Birmingham. We had the pleasure of dressing Brian McFadden and Keith Duffy for an upcoming performance and we were honoured to become finalists for the 2019 Drapers Awards, nominated for Mainstream Brand of the Year and Best Fashion Marketing Campaign.
Towards the end of the year we undertook an extremely important campaign to raise awareness around the subject of men's mental health featuring firefighter Joe Robinson, one of the first on the scene of the King Power Stadium helicopter crash. We also introduced our footwear collection with an aim to make Marc Darcy a one-stop destination for your next formalwear event. On top of this we gained another partnership under our belt as we teamed up with Championship team Cardiff City F.C. and last but certainly not least we got creative with Chelsea royalty Spencer Matthews and Hugo Taylor through the launch of our party wear campaign.
