As a boutique owner, or buyer, taking a day out to attend trade shows can often feel like you’re leaving a mountain of work behind, or missing out on focusing on all the never-ending admin tasks piling up.
However, as we eagerly anticipate Pure London, Moda and Harrogate Fashion Week, let me put your mind at ease! The veritable feast of fashion accessories showcased at each of these shows is not only the perfect buying opportunity, where you get to feel the product in real life, they will unleash a wave of creativity and inspiration. Some stands could entice you to take your store in a new direction, others could encourage you to stock a range you’d previously overlooked, and not to mention the networking opportunities and the chance for a natter with like-minded people!
Elsewhere in the issue we look at the newest products to market, keep you up-to-date with the latest industry news, and discuss the latest developments in my blog.
Enjoy the issue,
Louise Prance, Editor

Every sale from the Studs of Hope collection by ethical jewellery company Vurchoo gives back to local communities and is distributed worldwide by charitable partner Teach A Man to Fish. Founder and designer Alex Angel-Benscher tells us more. "I started Vurchoo seven years ago now. When I was travelling, I was exposed to so many children around the world who had experienced such extreme levels of poverty. I have always had a passion for design and when returning to the UK, I knew I could put my skills to good use and create a truly ethical business that makes people happy while making the world a better place at the same time."
Louise Rideout runs Hertford-based boutique Frankie and Olive, championing sustainable fashion and immersing herself in the local community – a key way for retailers to survive COVID and more. The name Frankie and Olive stands for 'honest and green', it is a fresh, friendly, independent women's boutique in Hertford. Having moved back from living in New Zealand for 16 years where I owned an award-winning shop selling sustainable clothing and gifts, I quickly noticed a gap in the market for a similar business with an ethical ethos. Frankie and Olive believes in Fairtrade, fair wages and safe working conditions for all workers and buys from labels who share these ethics. There are regular deliveries of thoughtfully sourced clothing and homewares offering quality, affordable pieces in natural, sustainable and ethically-produced materials.
