The Career Apparel Institute (CAI), a division of the National Association of Uniform Manufacturers and Distributors (NAUMD), selected Sprint PCS Retail Operations as one of the Top 10 career apparel programs in the country.

Sprint PCS, along with other top winners, was presented with the uniform industry’s HIGHEST HONOR, an Image of the Year Award, at the Rio Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The awards ceremony included a fashion show highlighting the award-winning programs.

Careerlook, Inc. custom designed the Sprint PCS program, a STYLISH alternative to the standard choice of uniform, which consists of a variety of mix and match corporate apparel. There are four distinct collections that clearly reflect the PRESTIGIOUS marquis of Sprint PCS, ranging from business casual to classic tailored corporate wear.

Sprint PCS’s RICH corporate colors of red, black, charcoal and stone, along with custom designed mini check fabric, were carefully coordinated, giving each uniform combination a complete ‘look’, truly their own. Woven tops, polos, pants, sweater vests and v-neck sweaters made of 100% cotton looked extremely SMART in appearance and comfortable to wear.

The same flair, SUPERB quality and attention to detail were used to design a more tailored, dressier collection. Men and women’s 100% wool jackets along with matching men’s pants and women’s skirts are the basis of this wardrobe. Coordinating men’s ties and shirts and women’s scarves and blouses complete the “CareerLook”.

“We are honored to be recognized as one of the top programs in the industry,” said Susan Kopperman, president of Careerlook Inc., the designer of the new Sprint PCS program. “This is such a DISTINCT HONOR. More than 100 new career apparel programs were submitted for recognition. Sharing this award with past winners like Mobil Oil, Coca-Cola and Exxon is a reflection of Sprint PCS’s COMMITMENT to quality. It is truly an honor to receive an Image of the Year Award.”

The Image of the Year Awards honors end-users and suppliers who have effectively used career apparel programs to project a desired IMAGE or meet a stated goal. Companies are judged on the basis of image projection, neatness, functionality, use of color, originality and coordination of garments with accessories.

Careerlook was recognized in the Business Journal for the prestigious Image of the Year Award.
