River Island & ASOS triumph at the Drapers Awards
One of the fashion industry's most important award ceremonies was held this week, and once again it was River Island and ASOS walking away with the awards. The Drapers Fashion Awards named River Island as Multiple Retailer of the Year, while ASOS scooped Best eTailer (do you see what they did there?). Lingerie retailer of the year was the suddenly fashionable Marks and Spencer, and the Value Retailer of the year (rather strangely, in my opinion) went to Sainsbury's. What, no Primark? Or even George at Asda? Shocking.
It's been a very good year for River Island and ASOS too have been going from strength to strength. But do you think they deserve their awards? For fans of the brands, the print mini dress above is a £25 ASOS number, and the blue chiffon dress is £39.99 at River Island.
