A Reason To Celebrate | Drapers Awards 2018

Despite not winning at this year’s Drapers Awards, we are incredibly proud to have been shortlisted for Accessory Brand Of The Year. Here’s how we celebrated the news…

It’s not every day you get shortlisted for a Drapers award, and quite frankly we never thought we’d be writing this blog post. Despite our current daze, we are delighted to announce that Maxwell Scott has been nominated in the Awards’ Accessory Brand Of The Year category. Testament to how far the brand has come over the past few years, William recently announced the news at a dinner party hosted at The Principal York hotel.

An opportunity to celebrate the team’s hard work and dedication, it was an evening filled with fine cuisine, live music from the York Jazz Initiative and brilliant company. It was also a chance to reflect on some of the brand’s recent triumphs, from becoming official suppliers of Saracens rugby union team to expanding into brick-and-mortar with Abraham Moon.

Known as one of the most prestigious award evenings in fashion retail’s calendar, the Awards’ hosts, Drapers, are highly respected for being at the front line of all fashion retail’s news. A chance to celebrate fashion’s finest, it’s the first time the Accessory Brand Of The Year category has been included within the twenty one categories. Brands such as Fiorelli and Valentino Handbags (Morris Fyfe Agency) join Maxwell-Scott in this newly appointed group.

This year’s judging panel consists of some of fashion’s most powerful players, from the Chief Executive of The British Fashion Council, Caroline Rush, to ELLE UK’s Editor, Anne Marie Curtis. The winners will be announced at the Drapers annual awards ceremony, hosted at the iconic Roundhouse in London on the 29th November. Over eight hundred of fashion retail’s most iconic and influential people will attend the sophisticated awards evening. Not a team to miss out on fun and frivolity, we will too be sprucing up for the occasion and heading down to London for the big night.

There’s no doubt about it – being shortlisted for a Drapers award is a proud and significant moment for Maxwell-Scott. CEO & founder William Scott Forshaw shares:

‘I’m incredibly honoured. It is moments such as these which acknowledge the significant amount of hard work that has been crucial to the growth of our brand. Being shortlisted for this award is a milestone in this trajectory. It is sure to be a wonderful evening and a great opportunity to network with some of the industry’s most respected figures.’

The Maxwell Scott team are very much looking forward to the awards ceremony at the Roundhouse in November. Keep your fingers crossed for us. We may have another reason to celebrate very soon…
