The UK economy has had a volatile past five years. The financial crisis dented consumer and business confidence to the detriment of some retailers. Recent economic recovery, which came in 2013-14, helped lift the retail sector as financial pressures eased. Despite these ups and downs, the Online Women's Clothing Retailing industry grew rapidly over the past five years as online shopping became more popular with consumers. This inspired the launch of increasingly advanced online platforms by both traditional retail operations and pure play ventures as both sought to capitalise on buoyant consumer demand.
