The search is on for Drapers’ 30 under 30, 2015. We’re looking for people aged 30 and under with a proven track record and who have made a difference to the businesses they have worked for and in the roles that they have held. You can come from a number of disciplines, including buying, merchandising, design, technical roles including pattern cutting, grading or garment tech, in retail/store operations, sales, marketing, or in a digital capity, among others.
