From the editor

Louise Prance-Miles, Editor

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!
