Designer Childrenswear win Kidswear Independent of the Year 2019
Designer Childrenswear scooped the award for Kidswear Independent of the Year, fighting off stiff competition at the Drapers Independents Awards 2019. The awards took place on September 11th at London’s prestigious Brewery and had the cream of the crop of the fashion industries’ independents in attendance. Guests were welcomed with a champagne reception and treated to a delicious three course meal, before the afternoon’s eighteen awards were presented to the best in menswear, womenswear and childrenswear.
The Drapers Independents Awards Judging Panel 2019 were particularly impressed with Designer Childrenswear’s performance giving the following comments:
This retailer’s great performance and impressive growth made it a stand-out winner in what was a very strong category and flourishing part of the market. It really knows its customer inside out and, instead of resting on its laurels, shows real ambition to keep growing and expanding.”Drapers Independents Awards 2019 Judging Panel
What goes in to winning a Drapers Award?
As a company, we feel honoured and privileged to have won our second Drapers Independents Award in as many years. Winning Kidswear Independent of the Year 2019 is particularly special for us, as it is an award that has been achieved as a result of a full team effort from every department. We strive to be the most dedicated team in the industry throughout the whole customer process, from receiving our stock to putting it online and in store, and to packing it with care, ensuring that it reaches our customers quickly and safely. Offering our customers an exemplary service is our main priority as a business and one that has seen over 215,000 return to use us again over the past twelve months.
2019 is a special year for Designer Childrenswear, as it recognises Managing Directors Brenda and Kevin Coade’s 35th year in business and our wonderful store has its first anniversary in October too. The store has been a real success since it opened in 2018, with some customers travelling over three hours to visit, another testament to the great customer service they receive and the prestige of the 165 brands that we offer.
Plans for the future
Over the next year, Designer Childrenswear plan to continue to grow within the UK, establishing a firm hold on our position within the high-end children’s fashion market. Already shipping worldwide, plans are in place to expand our global market too, aiming for a bigger presence in Asia, the USA and the UAE. The future certainly looks bright for the Designer Childrenswear team!
