Eric Musgrave, editorial director, Drapers, said: “In the 25 years since they were inaugurated in 1991, the Drapers Independents Awards have become a calendar fixture for the industry. They are rightly regarded as the Oscars for the fashion independent sector. The competition has become a national institution with both the industry and consumers, a standard for – and recognition of – excellence in all aspects of indie fashion retailing in the UK and Ireland.”
