When the Lisini Pub Co decided to revamp their staff uniforms across the chain, it was workplace clothing experts NKD Clothing they turned to for a new look.
The group – which includes Angels Hotel and Castle Rooms in Uddingston, The Croft and Parkille in Glasgow -employed NKD Clothing’s expert eye to freshen up their staff outfits while maintaining brand continuity.
The NKD design team produced several initial concepts, with Lisini settling on a final design which NKD then rapidly delivered on.
To date more than 150 outfits have been issued to staff with more on order to kit out staff at the Croft in Glasgow.
Lisini’s Lisa Wishart said: “We saw NKD in SLTN and from there we looked around and discovered they had worked on a number of brands we admire.
“We got in touch, explained what we needed and they very quickly came back with ideas and looks that would work for us.
“It was an incredibly quick and professional service.”
Design Project Manager Jill Robertson said: “It was a real treat to work with Lisini at such an exciting time of growth and change in their business. The new look is much suited to the surroundings, modern and stylish in appearance, including a black shirt, grey tie and a bespoke graphite grey apron with large embroidered pocket.”
NKD Clothing was established in 2002 and was subject to a management buy-out (MBO) by Managing Director Gill Eastgate in 2005. Since the MBO it has doubled its turnover to £1.3m and plans to further expand the Canonmills, Edinburgh-based business.
It supplies to dozens of businesses across the UK, including the De Vere and Malmaison hotel groups.
Already identified by Scottish Enterprise as a potential high-growth company, NKD Clothing is also now being marketed around the world by the influential Globalscot network.
