The Drapers Awards 2017

We are so thrilled to announce we won Womenswear brand of the year in the Drapers Independent Awards 2017! We could not have done it without our amazingly fabulous customers (yes you!) and we are so grateful to everyone who voted!


And what an amazing night indeed! And no, where not just talking about the bubbly! Get the tissues out dolls as we are going to get emotional.

The night was as glamorous as you would expect from an event organised for the very best of independent fashion retailing. We were greeted with a Champagne reception and we got the chance to network with all the other fabulous brands being celebrated by Drapers. We were then lead to our beautifully decorated table for a superb 3 course meal.

Time to get the party started! 

When the nominations were called…we were totally playing it cool! We were obviously nervous, but knew in our hearts that we had worked very hard, and were very proud to get the nomination for Womenswear Brand of the year.

And the winner is…

Collectif! I don’t think any of us were prepared for the loud cheer as we made our way to the stage, it was a fantastic feeling and we’re still buzzing with excitement.

It was wonderful to meet with all the brands and the Drapers team and being congratulated by such people felt spectacular.

‘I have never been so proud of our team! It is fantastic for them to be recognised at this level. Every single employee from the design team, the shops, wholesale, online retail, warehouse, head office and throughout the company has contributed. 

One thing is for sure, we could not have done it without our loyal customers, some of which have supported us since our humble beginnings in Camden Market 17 years ago, both wholesale and retail – THANK YOU; thank you to everyone who is connected to this very special brand!’ – John Alston, Managing Director

We could not have grown the way we have if it wasn’t for our customers and amazing Collectif team, so to this, we thank you!

And many congratulations to all of the other winners at the Drapers Independent Awards! It was great to see so many wonderful independent brands being recognised and rewarded for their dedication, ambition and drive.
