Put simply, we’ve been able to make processes faster, cheaper and better, and we have only begun to scratch the surface. It’s crucial that we continue to think seriously about future innovations and address the challenges and opportunities ahead.

“ASOS is a market leader and together we are proudly setting new standards for the industry.”

Winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony, taking place on 30 November at the iconic Roundhouse in London which will see over 800 of the great and good from the industry gather to celebrate the best in UK fashion retail.
