With 40 years under its stylish belt, premium womenswear indie Bernard Boutique is still setting standards.

Often found on the shopfloor chatting to her customers, co-owner Helene Rapaport still does all the buying and travelling for the store and has a formidable reputation for knowing what she - and her customers - want.

In the past year the upmarket indie invested in its online store and focused on building its Facebook and Twitter
fan base, and has been using iPads in store to show clients future trends and canvass opinion.

The store is also known for its collaborations with the many sought-after luxury brands that it stocks, with trunk shows, window installations and product-led cocktail parties all lighting up Esher’s social calendar.
