It seems fitting to publish our last Drapers Daily issue at Pure London with news that Sarah Coggles has topped Drapers’ Inspiring Independents list for 2012.
Pure London has attracted a host of great retailers this season and Sarah Coggles, whose co-owner Mark Bage attended our breakfast meeting on Monday morning, is a true example of best-in-class indie retailing. I’d like to extend our congratulations to all those retailers who made the Top 100 list – your continued innovation is vital to the health of the fashion industry.
It’s the last day of Pure London’s autumn 12 edition today, so make the most of it. There are still great seminars to attend, including one hosted by Drapers’ very own Marie Davies, who will be speaking this morning about what and how to buy for next season.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed editing Drapers’ first daily edition with a great team at the Drapers Daily newsroom. We hope to be back in the summer with an even bigger daily issue. Until then, have a great autumn 12 buying season.
