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!

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?!

FSB National Chairman Mike Cherry looks at the ramifications of fake reviews for small businesses, and calls on the Government to do more. In the 1990s, we could only dream of a world where we could buy anything at the click of a button from the comfort of our homes. But today, it's a multimillion-pound industry taking the world by storm, with small firms everywhere embracing the digital trade revolution to sell their services across the globe.... read more

Back to basics

Admittedly, if you want to be an IP lawyer you need to know a great deal about this complex set of laws but for a designer, in whatever discipline or sector, learning the basics about the intellectual property rights that you create and putting some common sense and practical protocols in place can stand you in good stead towards design protection to achieve growth. With a seismic shift towards online trading, it is now more important than ever to create a simple, proactive approach to the intellectual property you are creating to ensure that your designs are safe, from idea to marketplace.... read more
