About the Awards

Amazing Women Awards 2018

Last year we were blown away by the winners and shortlisted nominees and we celebrated with a glittering ceremony in London’s Claridge’s, which we can say hand on heart was our best night out of the year – from moving speeches and rousing cheers to dancing round our handbags until the early hours.

Victoria Betts, Global Omni Channel Director at Hotter, explains how the Hotter/W&H partnership came about.

“We understand that women over 50 are just getting started with their life’s adventures. It’s a time when they have more connections than ever before … children, and their children’s children; friends from work, hobbies and education; new careers.

"We’ve listened to our customers and they’re busier than ever before; they don’t have time to slow down, they are celebrating this latest stage of their lives – and they want to see other women doing the same.

"Which is why we’ve revamped our brand, we’re featuring models that look just like them and we felt this fantastic award event was a perfect fit – just like our shoes!”
