Drapers Independents Awards 2018
Drapers Independents Awards celebrate the most influential brands and highly respected independent retailers and reward those businesses that are changing the landscape of fashion. The ceremony provides an unrivalled opportunity to network with independent retailers that are innovating and inspiring as well as the brands that they stock that are really pushing the boundaries and standing out in a highly competitive crowd.
The fashion industry’s best independents provide inspiration on so many levels. Offering some of the best customer service in the fashion industry, indies know how to keep their customers happy – and keep them coming back.
Good independents really understand their customers’ lifestyles and interests and bring them into every part of the overall business strategy. They become local influencers, keeping them always at the forefront of their customers’ minds.
Good brands know the importance of their independent stockists and those that offer great value, quality and product range are also celebrated at Drapers Independents Awards.
For 2018 we had 17 categories including the newly introduced Most influential on Social Media, Best Marketing Campaign and Local Champion awards alongside the range of Best Independent and Best Brand categories across menswear, womenswear, lingerie and kidswear. The 2018 winners were revealed at a lunchtime awards ceremony at The Brewery in London on 12th September 2018.
