Janet was invited to The Drapers Independent Awards this year as part of Frank Lyman’s table, and for those in the Fashion Industry, you’ll know what an honour this is. But for those left wondering “What are the Draper Independent Awards?”, allow me to shed some light on their importance, and what it means for Frank Lyman to be shortlisted.
The 2016 Drapers Independent Awards mark the 26th anniversary of an accolade that, in their own words “highlights and celebrates the best of independent fashion retailing”. As the regions premier ladies and gents designer boutique, the Drapers Independent Awards represent the pinnacle of recognition for many people within the Fashion Industry. When it comes to selecting finalists, Drapers employ stringent stipulations on what makes a ‘Premium Fashion Independent’. Stores must display a strong edit of key brands and work to an effective buying strategy that guarantees that they stay at the top of their game; in short, Drapers recognises these strategies, and celebrates those who excel with them.
To have reached the finals of the Drapers Independent Awards is an incredible accolade and Janet had the pleasure of attending as a guest to the ceremony with Mr Frank Lyman himself. Toasting in a glittering ceremony at London’s The Brewery on September 14th, she was joined by Mr Lyman, Mr Black (The UK Director) and Joanne Baron, the Design Director. Unfortunately Frank Lyman didn’t win, but the nomination itself is something to be extremely proud of.
It was a pleasure meeting you at the Drapers Independents Awards Gala!
We had a lovely afternoon in good company and loved to see how passionate you are about the fashion industry.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your loyalty and looking forward to continuing our business relationship.
