Refresh those rails

As the busy summer wedding season draws to a close, it’s time to re ect on what’s selling well, what’s underperforming and whether you’re bringing your customers the gowns they’re looking for. That way, when you spend time viewing the 2020 collections at The Harrogate Bridal Show, you’ll be much more targeted with your buying, saving you both time and money. I can’t wait to see the new designs as well as a snapshot of up-and-coming trends on the catwalk at the fashion shows – turn to page 33 for our comprehensive preview of this invaluable industry event.

Also in this issue Keren Smith takes an in-depth look at one of the most under-used aspects of social media – video content. While it might not come naturally to some, Keren has some fantastic and easy-to-implement ideas that will help you to not only connect with current brides-to-be but also to turn them into customers. Do let us know how you get on – good luck!
