For this year’s Christmas Gift Guide I enlisted the help of my great friend Emily (co-editor of Angels & Urchins magazine).
It’s always exciting to discover a new designer through word of mouth and that’s exactly what happened with Beshlie.
You have to check out these funky scarves by new designer Duet. When my friend Jemima and I found them in Paris there was no hesitation whatsoever.
Much as we all love online shopping I know that it’s also great to see things in the flesh and give them a good old touch and feel. Although you don’t have to worry about sizes with scarves its still fun to try them on.
I am obsessed by those ‘Day in the life of’ type articles about women who set up their own businesses and juggle it all with having a family. Now I find myself in a similar situation I thought I would share with you what it’s like trying to juggle it all.
Each week, Jo Glynn-Smith interviews a successful woman to find out how she made it to the top, and gets tips on maintaining a successful work-life balance. This week, she meets Harriet Cleverly, the founder of Cleverly Wrapped.
I think that all people who work in fashion and retailing hopefully believe that their latest collection is better than their last. I say that because I think it’s human nature to want to better oneself and of course this becomes easier as you have history to learn from.

Long Cashmere Scarf Styling Tips. The final video is for long, rectangular, fine, luxury cashmere or cashmere blend scarves.
Scarf Styling Tips For Large Printed Scarves. We filmed some Autumn scarf styling tips to help inspire a bit of variety for your AW15 accessories.
It’s definitely the time of year to take a look at your winter wardrobe and see what may need adding to make it work for the cold, dark few months ahead. Now, funny I should say this but I really think you should start by looking at your scarf collection!
When you are in the scarf business you spend a lot of time looking at other people’s scarves and how they’ve style them. I have a friend called Sophie Eadie and she has got both the beautiful scarves and the creative styling nailed. Every time I see her she seems to be wearing a beautifully unique scarf, tied in an unusual manner, matched with varying jackets or tops and she always looks fab!
I am so excited to be launching Autumn Winter 15 with a brand new and diverse accessories collection. The thought process behind doing a few accessories to this collection is that they work so well along side the scarves. All of them compliment the scarves or make a great gift in their own right.
Most of the new scarf designers for Autumn Winter 15 were discovered on my buying trip to Paris last March. There are seven of them in total and I have put them in alphabetical order so as not to be accused of favouritism!
The Spirit Of Summer Fair at the London Olympia, was our first ever trade show and an experience I won’t forget. Here is a short video to give you an idea of the beautiful setting and a glimpse of our vibrant stand.
I am sure that many of you will have heard of the Spirit of Christmas fair, but maybe less so the Spirit of Summer fair. It is a four day long shopping event at Olympia London, from Wed 17th June until Sat 20th June from 10am till 6pm every day. The event is held in association with House and Garden and is a mix of lifestyle, homewares, fashion and accessory brands.
Now I have a studio full of scarves I have realised that there is a lot of fun to be had framing scarves as art. The children get a funky playroom, the walls now look like a modern art gallery and I am seeing a sideline to the Cleverly Wrapped business. Who says scarves need to just be tied around the neck or as used as a head band?!
