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!

As temperatures rise, the sun dominates the skyline, and pubs and gardens are thrown open for friends and family meet ups, sunglasses will once again be an outfit staple for many!

The genderless styles from Kyme immediately caught my eye, with the 'Adam' (pictured) a particular favourite.

Giving & Living throws open its digital doors to the world 

Giving & Living throws open its digital doors to the world 

Show organiser Hale Events has announced that the 2021 edition of Giving & Living, which usually takes place in Exeter, will be an online event running from 10th-12th May, 2021. This is when the physical event was due to take place until ongoing lockdown restrictions meant it was no longer viable.The digital event will offer a superb product sourcing opportunity to both local retailers and those from further afield who might not have had the chance to sample the delights of this wonderful regional show in previous years. The British economy is like a coiled spring on tenterhooks waiting to unwind and there is an excellent chance that the South West region – the traditional home base of Giving & Living – is set for a bumper tourist season. The exhibition will feature a large and varied selection of retail-ready suppliers presenting a wide variety of lovely new products, many of which are locally produced in the South West or made by hand in other parts of the UK.... read more

How to motivate your team

How to motivate your team

Sara Davies discusses how to create a positive working environment with proactive employees.Every business owner wants to make sure that their employees are motivated. After all, highly engaged staff are more productive and contribute to a positive working environment. When people feel more motivated in their careers, they are more likely to work hard, show commitment, produce better work and take a vested interest in their career development at the company. Learning new skills and progressing into different roles encourages people to stay with the business and ultimately, secures the company's future workforce. As a business leader, we want our employees to enjoy work so that they feel content and want to remain part of the team for years to come. I have found that there are some really simple, easy things that can be implemented to motivate everyone, regardless of their role or position.... read more
