The Boutique Star Awards is the industry’s most exciting competition, created by the only trade magazine in the UK dedicated to supporting independent fashion/ lifestyle retailers and their suppliers.


Since launching in 2019, it has been celebrating the hard work, tenancy and achievements of the entire industry, recognising the best retailers, agents, brands, distributors and professionals in the UK.


The competition has grown year on year and is fast becoming a highlight of the independent fashion industry calendar. 

Last year’s winners’ party saw over 100 industry insiders gather at London’s five-star May Fair Hotel for an awards ceremony and celebration. Hosted by television presenter Hayley Sparkes, 16 awards were presented to leading indie retailers including Domino Style for Fashion Independent of the Year, Young Ideas for Independent Group of the Year and Doodie Stark for Creative VM Independent of the Year.


This year the competition will return for a fourth time, giving retailers and suppliers a chance to win 21 different categories (including six new awards). Entries open online in February and will close at the end of July.
