You’ll notice that the transactions they commemorate involve a number of internationally recognized fashion, cosmetics, and apparel players and brands. These include, among others, L’Oreal, Vionic, Kurt Geiger, Urban Decay Cosmetics, Under Armour, Pacific Brands, W Magazine, Billabong, and Liberty London.

But you’ll also encounter a number of transactions involving brands and companies that may be less familiar.

You’ll see, for instance, a fashion industry award, and a custom team recognition piece celebrating the dedication of a major apparel distribution center.
