Mish joins Drapers judging panel


A Cornish retailer has been asked to be a judge at this year’s Drapers Fashion Awards.

The awards celebrate the achievements of the very best independent fashion retailers from across the UK and Ireland, and the brands that make them so successful.

Michele Poynter’s lingerie business, Mish, has been crowned the UK’s Best Lingerie Independent Retailer three years in succession and now she is set to join the judging panel.

She said: “Despite the turbulent year we’ve just had, my business is in a good place and I’m so honoured that I’ve been asked to be part of the Drapers judging panel.

“I know first-hand what winning those awards means – though anyone who has managed to steer their businesses through such rough times deserves an award in my opinion! I’m so thrilled to be able to offer my expertise and honour other thriving businesses.”
