FASHION boutique Kitch on Tunbridge Wells’ High Street has been shortlisted in Drapers Independent Awards 2023.
Kitch has been nominated for Best Customer Experience, Best Use of Social Media and is also hoping to scoop the coveted Womenswear Independent of the Year 2023.
Last year’s winner of the Womenswear Independent Award, bod & ted, is also based on the High Street.
Kitch, known for its must-have bold, bright pieces from various eclectic brands, was opened 18 years ago by Charlotte Newman.
On its Instagram, Kitch has thanked Drapers for the recognition:
“It is an honour to be shortlisted for the Drapers awards and it is something we are incredibly proud of! We want to thank our amazing and loyal customers for all your continued support over the past 18 years”.
Established in 1887, Drapers is a leading business-to-business magazine in the fashion retail sector. The awards will “recognise the fashion retailers and brands that have innovated to survive, supported their local communities, and built stronger businesses under the toughest of circumstances”.
The winners of each award will be announced on September 21 at Grosvenor House, London.
