Kite wins at UK Fashion & Textile Awards

We've won the Childrenswear Brand Award at the prestigious UK Fashion & Textile Awards 2014 sponsored by NatWest!

The winners were announced on Thursday 22 May at a high-profile red carpet ceremony held at East London’s Tobacco Dock and hosted by ITV presenter and Strictly Come Dancing star Susanna Reid. The evening welcomed a stellar line up of industry leaders, VIPs and celebrities including Jack Guinness, Brix Smith, Jade Parfitt and Jo Wood, all of whom turned out to the exclusive ceremony to celebrate the most exciting, innovative and successful UK fashion and textile businesses.

We entered the Childrenswear Brand Award which was a category open to any established childrenswear brand and where judges were looking for creativity, a strong brand proposition, a dedicated following in the UK and overseas, and good sales growth.

Roger, who collected the award from Susanna Reid and Jo Wood, said: “I’m delighted to receive this award on behalf of the whole Kite team. We’re thrilled to have been recognised for our achievements over the past 12 months: we grew our sales by more than 50% and now serve more than 300 stockists across 20 countries. The key to our success has been our focus on producing fabulous collections for our consumers – every garment we design and make is packed with original and thoughtful details, manufactured to the highest quality and produced with the lowest environmental impact.”
