Drapers Awards 2023

"Fashion supplier of the year"

As we approach the end of the year, this always gives us a good opportunity to reflect and prepare for the future.

A particular highlight in our calendar has been attending the prestigious Drapers awards in London. We were a contender in the ‘Fashion Supplier of the Year’ category and were hoping for our third consecutive win. To be a winner of a Drapers award is an industrywide recognised achievement and we were super proud to already have two wins under our belt, but would it be possible to clinch it again? …We did it!

We won our third consecutive Drapers award! Here’s what the judges had to say: “This winner was labelled as a truly sustainable supplier with a resilient and passionate outlook. Its sustainable sourcing, UK production and authenticity impressed judges.”

In a submission to the judges, our friends at Patagonia had this to say about us: “Halley Stevensons has been an absolute dream partner to work with! From pioneering 100% plant-based waxes with no forever chemistries to leaning into transformative agriculture base fabric, they have gone above and beyond our expectations of partnership. This commitment, and therefore the leadership, in building the highest quality and most sustainable materials sets an example for the industry to follow. The passion, commitment, and joy the amazing people at Halley Stevensons bring is infectious. We are grateful for them and for their partnership!”

Alongside this wonderful recommendation we hoped that our commitment to innovation and sustainability, our support for graduates and startups, the accessibility of our products, our collaborations with forward thinking brands and our personal service qualified us as a top contender.

We’re absolutely over the moon to have won such a prestigious award and we’d like to thank all of you who have supported us with your business and partnership over the years. Here’s to many more successful years of collaboration!
