Wellness in the workplace has never been more essential; Louise Prance looks at how caring for your employees' wellbeing can help foster a happy and thriving business
Rebecca Robertson began Holly Silver by Rebecca following a turbulent period in her personal life. Now, she hopes to inspire others with beautiful, meaningful jewellery. Read her story here…
The past few months have read like a business horror story for some, there’s no need for me to elaborate on why, which is why it was so refreshing to chat to jewellery brand by Mollie&Izzie founder Sarah Patterson about her COVID-19 successes. While, like many, Sarah feared the worse upon news of lockdown mandates, her product ship size as well as web sales meant that the business has survived and thrived. Looking forward, Sarah echoed my sentiments from last issue’s editor’s letter – online is key to business going forward. What is also key, of course, is ensuring that the right product is in stock.
That’s why I have thrown the spotlight on hats, gloves and scarves this issue. Winter, I’m afraid to say, is almost upon us, and the cold weather accessories essentials are a great in-store or online retail offering.
We like to cover all bases here at Attire Accessories, so also check out our catch up with Nour London on page 127, as well as a focus on some of the best new products on the market on page 125.

Louise x We all need a bit of a pick me up right now, and rainbows are the ultimate symbol of hope. Which is why this bracelet by Estella Bartlett stuck out to me.
Decorated with a rainbow of Miyuki beads and completed by a beaming sun pendant, the bracelet arrives cushioned in a soft grey pouch and packaged in a gift envelope making this the perfect gift.
Oh, and it's called the Beaded Rainbow Sun Charm Louise Bracelet, so I have to love it don't I?!
