The annual list spotlighting fashion and retail rising stars is back for its 10th edition, and we want your nominations.

Each year Drapers celebrates the rising stars of our industry with our 30 Under 30 list, bringing together the best talent from across a diverse range of career paths.

From fashion week designers, store managers and department store buyers, to financial analysts, software engineers and independent retailers – even in these challenging times, talented individuals make the difference to businesses and Drapers will continue to seek out and celebrate the best of the best.
