2015 Highlight: Fashion Independents’ Day UK! (#FIDay)

One of our highlights in 2015 has to be Fashion Independents’ Day UK (#FIDay)! On May 28th, we held the ultimate independent fashion retail event in the form of the #FIDay Fashion Grand Prix UK with London’s most influential fashion crusaders. Key influencers, Antonia O’Brien, Zoe Hardman, Vogue Williams, Susie Lau, Nick Ede, Danielle Peazer, Simon G, and Princess Julia raced across London calling into as many boutiques as possible, taking selfies along the way, and shouting about the indie retail sector across frockadvisor, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Of course there had to be a winner and on the day, fashion blogger, model, and professional dancer Danielle Peazer trended highest and generated the most noise across all social media! frockadvisor are going to be doing it all again next year, and we’re going to be shouting even louder and prouder about the independent fashion sector.
