A SURFING store with shops across Cornwall has been highly commended in the prestigious Drapers Fashion Awards.

Anns Cottage was recognised from a list of six other shortlisted retailers in the Best Young Fashion Retailer 2012 category.

The glitzy London ceremony was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel and was hosted by television and radio star Lauren Laverne.

The Drapers Awards attract a host of fashion heavyweights and the judging panel included the British Fashion Council, British Retail Consortium and national newspaper The Times.

Owner Rob Harris said: "the sky is the limit".

"To be recognised by the leading business-to-business fashion retail magazine means exposure locally, nationally and even internationally. The sky is the limit and it means all eyes are on Cornwall, it's fantastic," he said.

This year's awards marked the 125th anniversary of Drapers Magazine, which many view as the fashion Bible.

Other categories saw the likes of Burberry, River Island, Primark and Dr. Martens take top prizes.
