We were part of the Smarta 100 in 2010; at that stage, we'd just launched our first studio outside of London - we now have a network of 33 locations nationwide and a concession in John Lewis Oxford Street.
We knew that entering the awards would be a great opportunity for us to network with other businesses, enable more people to hear about A Suit That Fits and that if we won the award, it would be a fantastic seal of approval.
We've had the chance to attend some great networking events and have received exposure on Smarta.com - overall, it's been a really fun and inspiring experience.
Smarta 100 has been great for building the confidence of our customers, as well as giving us the chance to network within the business community and raising our profile.
Since being a Smarta 100 winner, we've really grown as a business. We've developed a network of over 30 locations nationwide, won a number of prestigious awards and launched our first concession in John Lewis Oxford Street.
It's really important that you have something that catches the judges' eye - tell them what makes you so special and why you should be part of the Smarta 100. Also, learn from previous winners and ask them for feedback - they'll likely be happy to help.
