This issue we have a show focus, promoting what’s to come at must-visit fashion accessory events Pure London, Moda and Harrogate Fashion Week. And as most of you will know, July and August are the prime months to get your order books ready for the lucrative festive season. And given that the Christmas period is often one that keeps companies afloat for the slower months of January and February, in my expert blog I look at how retailers can further capitalise on the season. From strategising to make use of the pre-Christmas discounting periods such as Cyber Week, to selling sustainably and, should you have an online store, ensuring you have your delivery services up-to-speed.
As ever, we continue to highlight the best new products to market, so if you’re looking to evolve your store’s offering, head over to our New Product feature. Likewise, our company profile on Rodney Holman gives an insight into how this industry stalwart has stood the test of time.
Enjoy the issue!

I had been trading for many years through fairs and various market stalls and my sister, who owned the restaurant next door to my shop, let me know that it was available to rent and I jumped at the chance to finally have a fixed address – and also to work next door to her! Is the location important to the success of your store? Our shop is on one of the oldest garden squares in London and, whilst not on the high street, it is a frequently used walk through up to the high street. We are in such a beautiful spot and I think customers like us being this hidden gem they have chanced upon.
Hot Tomato Director, Alex Machin, sees challenges as a learning curve, and has built a successful and thriving business offering guilt-free, affordable products. "We started trading in a very modest way in 2007. I was working as an agent at the time we set up the company and ran both businesses in tandem for the first few years. Our first range consisted of one style of silk scarf in 24 colours from Vietnam – I sold them out of the boot of my car as I travelled around seeing my customers – those were the days!"
