Miss Shoes Ltd, an online footwear and fashion retailer based in Norwich, are pleased to announce that they have been nominated for a Draper’s Footwear Award 2015. This is a fantastic achievement for a growing family business that is up against retail heavyweights such as New Look and Schuh for the Footwear Pure-Play/Multichannel Retailer of the Year award. The black-tie awards ceremony is being held at the historic Tower of London on Thursday 4th June and Miss Shoes are hoping luck is on their side.
The Draper’s Footwear Awards celebrates the finest of footwear retailing talent, praising the innovation, creativity and success of these companies. What makes this award ceremony stand out is that it doesn’t just only recognise the big high street players, it acknowledges the achievements of new designers, small independent stores and growing footwear brands alike. This has enabled Miss Shoes to be rewarded with a nomination for their many accomplishments, which is exciting for both its founders and the staff. On the nomination director and co-founder Monica Lott said ‘The nomination to be a finalist in the Pure Play/ Multi Channel Retailer of the Year at the Draper’s Footwear Awards is a recognition of our team's effort over last 7 years. There are lots of challenges and massive chances ahead and we will try our best to continue to provide the best service to all our customers.’
About Miss Shoes: Miss Shoes was founded by Monica and Martin Lott through Monica’s typical female love of shoes, and started life as a small eBay shop. Director and co-founder Martin Lott explains that they ‘...started the company by accident when Monica had about 100 new shoes to sell that she had bought from a wholesaler in Norwich. We put the shoes online, before most high street retailers had a strong online presence, and found they sold well.’ Since then it has expanded into one of the largest online footwear shops on both eBay and Amazon, selling a strong range of brands worldwide. This success resulted in the launch of FYFO (Fuel Your Fashion Online) (www.fyfo.co.uk), an ever evolving website stocking both well-known and up and coming brands, and giving customers an enjoyable and easy shopping experience. Today, they have grown to a team of 20, all based in the fine city of Norwich.
