We are very pleased to announce that Beverley Edmondson has been shortlisted as one of six finalists for the Niche Fashion Retailer of the Year Award by leading industry organisation; Drapers.
Beverley is very excited to have been selected, especially as the awards are judged by leading fashion industry specialists to “highlight and celebrate the best of independent fashion retailing” (Drapersonline.com).
The judges of the Drapers Independents Awards, who include Paul Wilkinson, Head of Global Marketing, Barbour and Paula Fowler, Director of Fashion for Associated Independent Stores, will make their decision later in the year. The award winners will not find out until the event in September, as the decision is kept secret until the award is announced. So it will feel a little like being at a film awards waiting for them to open the shiny gold envelope!
This year is the Silver Anniversary of The Drapers Independents Awards, which will take place on Wednesday 16th September 2015 in East London. Beverley will be attending the exclusive ceremony.
So Beverley will have plenty of time to make herself a show-stopping headpiece to wear for the occasion.
We will keep you up to date by social media on the day to let you know if she has won!
