Thanks to everyone who entered our ‘Best foot forward’ competition, inspired by the trend-setting footwear borne by one of travel retail’s true style icons. No, it wasn’t (as some of you guessed) Randy Emch, nor was it Blog sponsor Stuart Bull, although we think both qualify as industry icons of fashion in their own right.
It was of course World Duty Free Managing Director Mark Riches (left, with the greatly handicapped Publisher of The Moodie Report at the Dubai Duty Free Golf World Cup), snapped at the Trinity Forum golf tournament sporting the latest must-have footwear – complete with speed stripe – for the man about London town.
The first correct entry drawn from the virtual hat was that of former Nestlé International Travel Retail Deputy General Manager– and now Egyptair Duty Free Shops Purchasing Consultant – Iain Harrison, who identified Mark’s sleek, sculpted foot. Iain receives some fabulous golf vouchers courtesy of The Moodie Report and The Montgomerie golf club in Dubai.
