It has been another strong year for Kieran O’Neill, the co-founder of menswear personal styling website Thread. Having been selected as one of Drapers 30 Under 30 stars of the future in 2016, this year the entrepreneur led Thread to scoop the Best Use of Content award at the Drapers Digital Awards in April, recognising the success of its blog in converting shoppers. The etailer, which was launched in 2012, has continued to grow in popularity and is seeking to capitalise on this growth by launching into womenswear in the near future. O’Neill is now actively building his team to enable this.
