Sussex clothing brand, Skinny Chimp, recently won the coveted title of Best UK Online Store in the UK Fashion and Beauty Awards 2014.
The first UK Fashion and Beauty Awards, in association with Glamourous Beauty spa, took place on 12th July in Liverpool, and saw the brand compete against many major high street brands for the prestigious title.
Based in the rural Sussex market town Hailsham, Skinny Chimp was founded in 2013 by internationally renowned DJ Rebecca Goodchild, who goes by the moniker of DJ Lady Bex, with a mission to offer practicality with a fashionable design that stands out from the crowd. Launching with the original low cut vest, the collection has since grown to include hoodies, wide neck t-shirts, beanies and snapback hats.
“It’s fantastic to win such a prestigious award after just 14 months in business,” commented Goodchild. “This is the third party endorsement we needed that confirms our position within the fashion industry. The Skinny Chimp brand will now go from strength to strength – look out for myself and the chimps in the future.”
