Footwear elite steps out in style

The cream of the UK and Ireland's footwear industry met last week at the Hilton on London's Park Lane to toast their success at the Drapers Footwear Awards

The UK footwear industry's elite gathered last week for the annual Drapers Footwear Awards in London, with more than 600 guests raising their glasses to the trade's great and good.

Winners included Crocs, which was named Footwear Brand of the Year. Dune won Footwear Retailer of the Year, while the Lifetime Achievement Award went to Catherine Paver of Pavers.

The Young Fashion Footwear Retailer of the Year prize was won by London chain Bullfrogs, which prompted former employee and Channel 4 presenter Dave Berry to text Bullfrogs' Demian Brewster the message "well done the Frog".

Comedian Michael McIntyre hosted the event, cracking some good (and bad) gags aimed at Tesco and Marks & Spencer, although Priceless boss Ron Stark had the last laugh after pointing out that the comic's shoes were from M&S.
