Kiti has been named in Drapers’ list of 100 Inspiring Independents
Drapers, “the bible of the fashion industry” for more than 130 years, and proud supporter of UK and Irish retail, has today announced that Kiti which is based in Pontcanna, Cardiff has been chosen as one of this year’s Inspiring Independents.
Drapers has been celebrating the brilliance and resilience of independent fashion and footwear retailers with the Drapers Independents Awards for more than 30 years. This year, however, Covid-19 prevented us from gathering the best of the best at our annual gala ceremony. Instead we scoured the land for the most outstanding businesses.
Rather than providing a comprehensive list of all good independents in the country – of which there are thousands – it shines a spotlight on the amazing resilience of this sector.
Under lockdown, many of our Inspiring Independents went above and beyond to support their local communities and continue to serve their customers, often hand delivering purchases to their homes, and keeping connected with house bound people via social media.
We would like to congratulate all our Inspiring Independents for rising to the challenge of the pandemic, and continuing to support high streets and their neighbourhoods in these exceptional circumstances.
