If you ask Urban Vintage owner Daniel Le Sauvage what his highlight of 2012 was, he’ll tell you it was being named Young Fashion Retailer of the Year at the Drapers Fashion Awards. He adds that taking pride in customer service and championing interesting new brands help set his boutique apart.
The past 12 months have seen the young fashion indie investing heavily in multichannel retailing, introducing email and SMS marketing, and improving the functionality of its website ahead of a full re-launch later this year.
There are also plans for touchscreens that allow customers to make purchases and enter competitions.
