A Heanor-based designer has been awarded runner up entrepreneur of the year for her company Fazane Malik Clothing LTD.
Fazane Malik scooped the accolade at the Nottingham Post Women in Busines awards ceremony on November 19.
Fazane, 30, worked in the industry for ten years before starting her label two years ago and leaving her job with a leading clothing manufacturer High Fashion UK a year ago to concentrate on it fully.
More than 100 businesses were nominated for the 11 awards on offer so competition was fierce, but Fazane made it to the finals
She said: “I was originally nominated for Small Business of the Year. I was really honoured to get to the awards and find out I was actually a finalist for Entrepreneur of the Year and then to get runner up was just absolutely amazing!”
