Get ready to party like it’s 2019: After a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MR Magazine and Wainscot Media are thrilled to announce the return of the MR Awards. The see-and-be-seen must-attend event of the menswear industry calendar makes its triumphant return to the Edison Ballroom during New York menswear market week, on Sunday, July 17th, 2022, with the theme Resilience and Reinvention. 

“I can’t wait to click glasses with industry colleagues, some of whom I haven’t seen in almost three years! The strength of our menswear industry is the genuine friendships nurtured over time,” says Karen Alberg Grossman, MR’s Editor-in-Chief. “Here’s to reinforcing these relationships at this year’s MR Awards dinner. To the good times!”

The MR Awards will see the addition of iconic individuals to our Lifetime Achievement category while honoring quintessential retailers and brands in the menswear industry. 

“We are thrilled to anchor men’s market week in NYC with the return of the MR awards on July 17th,” says Lizette Chin, Vice President/Group Publisher, Menswear & Luxury for MR Magazine and Wainscot Media. “Since 2006 this annual event has been a must-attend for many in the industry. After this hiatus since 2019, we will be celebrating our industry’s resilience and we could not be more excited.”
