Eligibility criteria

Anyone working in the independent fashion retailing industry in the UK and Ireland (including brands, agents and retailers) is eligible to vote.

However, please note that an unreasonable number of votes from a single business may be discounted, so please do not try to unfairly influence the final outcome.

  • Be an independent fashion retailer operating in the UK and/or Ireland
  • Have at least one bricks-and-mortar shop, and no more than 11
