“The 20th Drapers Awards recognised and celebrated a diverse mix of business from high street chains, to department stores to boutiques and brands. What they all share is a bold and brave attitude to selling fashion in today’s changing climate. All have recorded strong success in the last 12 months, jumping on the opportunities that are very much around. This is absolute proof that fashion isn’t frivolous – it remains a key driver in our economy.” Commented Jessica Brown, Editor of Drapers.

Congrats to Drapers and everyone involved for such a fabulously fashionable event!
