On the up

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.

If you would like to see yourself in this magazine as either a retailer interview, or company profile, or just fancy discussing an industry issue, please drop me a line!

While lockdown was understandably hard for many, it also gave rise to some incredibly inspiring and creative projects, such as the new jewellery range from the founder of NIXEY, Laura-Marie Nixey.

She said, "During the COVID lockdown, I took up the cliché pastimes of painting and jewellery making. What started out as something to keep me sane, developed into NIXEY's first jewellery collection inspired by Celtic Tree Astrology. Now, I hand make each fine silver pendant from my home in London.”

by Molly&Izzie began in 2015 as a side hustle when founder Sarah Patterson decided to use her graphic design training to launch a range of wedding stationary. This business gradually expanded to include art prints based around celebrating important moments. The business grew slowly and by early 2016 I was also designing and producing business stationery for small businesses. Here, Sarah Patterson talks us through the brands evolution from wedding stationary to the newest eco-jewellery range... read more
