Last week was an amazing time for me and my career as a buyer and boutique owner. I've been buying women's fashions for 19 years and must be quite good at it as the industry awarded me with the huge acolade of Best Individual Womenswear Buyer at the PURE Power Buyers Awards in Olympia, London on Monday 3 August 2015. The event was well attended by buyers and brands and what has made it extra special for me is all the awards are Peer nominated so once you are shortlisted you then had to nominate who you think deserved to win. That for me was the best part, as I did not hesitate to recommend who I thought should win and then lo and behold little old me won.
To win this is huge for me as being a retailer in a town like Falkirk right now is anything but easy. The town is on its knees. The council has done its best to make sure everyone stays away and goes either online or to the retail park built on the edge of town with copious free parking and late night shops. Granted you wont find any inspirational indies down there nor will you find any inspirational shops to browse as its groundhog day with the same product season after season in a different colour or fabric and its only you and a few hundred thousand people who will feel special wearing that item.
That does not happen when you shop with me. I travel all over europe sourcing the right styles so I have a proper boutique business with newness that makes the girls who come in enjoy the experience and come back time and time again. You dont get that in the High Street. We have amazing styles coming in this Autumn Winter season and I am already beyond excited about the gems I've discovered for SS16.
At Sisters we have really embraced "The place to go when you have a place to go " theme. I've got dresses for all events covered and a stunning new collection of fascinators and hatinators to complete the look. We can dress you from head to toe and ensure you stand out and feel a million dollars at your event.
Pop in and see us soon and see my latest award, its in the shop for everyone to see that we are officially doing something right plus you can have a look at the link below to see all the finalists and winners on the night.
Happy Shopping Sisterhood
