If your independent business celebrates a milestone birthday this year, then Drapers wants to hear from you.
The Great British Fashion campaign has been launched by Drapers to celebrate and champion the fashion industry and to coincide with the glut of fashion businesses celebrating special anniversaries in 2009.
This year, menswear indie Frank Bird, which has stores in Barnsley and Wakefield in Yorkshire, is 70, while designerwear indie Richmond Classics in Bournemouth, Dorset, turns 21. London kidswear indie Ruth also has a milestone birthday, its 50th, this year.
Drapers will run a series of initiatives to celebrate what is great about the fashion industry, including a special supplement on the best businesses in the sector, from indies through to multiples and high street chains, and coverage of anniversaries.
To get your business’s milestone birthday included, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details and how you plan to mark it, plus a brief history of your business.
