Ask luxury indie GarmentQuarter’s founder, John Reid, the highlight of his year and it’s an easy choice. “Winning Best New Business at the Drapers Fashion Awards,” he says. “Everyone put so much into the year, it was such an amazing recognition to win.”
Reid opened GarmentQuarter in 2010, aged 27, and has already lured labels such as Marc by Marc Jacobs. He introduced pre-season presentations during the year to allow customers to pre-order their favourite pieces.
