Nominations are now open for Drapers’ list of the most inspiring independent fashion retailers in the UK and Ireland, which will celebrate success, creativity and survival in the sector during the coronavirus crisis and beyond.
The Covid-19 pandemic has hit the entire fashion industry – including independent retailers, wholesale brands and agents – hard. But many indies have swiftly adapted, finding ways to continue trading online and help local communities.
To support the industry through this difficult time, and celebrate your survival and success stories, we are transforming this year’s Drapers Independents Awards into a celebration of Inspiring Independents.
