Pure London will once again host its Best of British Independent Retailer Awards at the forthcoming February show, and is looking for nominations of UK indies excelling in business and driving change and innovation in the fashion and footwear retail industry.
Presented in partnership with the Fashion Association of Britain (FAB, part of BIRA), the awards are split across 11 categories, with nine awards divided by region and two dedicated awards for Footwear Retailer of the Year and Menswear Retailer of the Year. Entrants will be asked to answer a series of questions about their company to enable the judges to understand its vision, values and achievements.
The nominations process is now open to everyone, including independent retailers who are able to enter themselves for the award.
Julie Driscoll, portfolio director for Pure London, said; “’The Best of British awards will celebrate the triumphs and successes of independent retailers and boutiques, giving recognition to their hard work across all aspects of their business. This will include their dedicated buying teams, customer service, store merchandising and online offering. We are thrilled to celebrate their success once again this season.”
The initial round of entries will close on Monday 11 January 2016, before a shortlist of finalists are invited to attend the official awards event on Monday 15 February 2016.
