UNIQLO today announces that UNIQLO Le Marais, in Paris, France, has been recognized as the best fashion and footwear retail concept of 2014, by MAPIC, a global industry association for retail and property development.

The accolade was presented on November 20 at the MAPIC Awards Gala Dinner, which recognize excellence, innovation, and creativity in the retail real estate industry. The Gala was hosted at the Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez, at Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France.

Launched April 25, 2014, UNIQLO Le Marais is housed in a mid-19th century former foundry, combining a modern layout with historical features, such as its 35-meter red brick chimney.

Fast Retailing Group Officer and UNIQLO Europe CEO Berndt Hauptkorn said, "I am thrilled and honored that UNIQLO has won such a prestigious award. It is a superb recognition, and we are sincerely proud of our accomplishment, in offering an exceptional experience for UNIQLO customers."
