Gift Focus inc Attire Accessories - September/October 2022

7 EDITOR’S LETTER On the cover Established in 1971 by Chairman and Co-Founder Ronnie Pavey, Lesser & Pavey has become a leading UK Trade Supplier of Giftware & Homewares. By priding itself on fantastic quality at great value for money, the brand The Leonardo Collection has become renowned worldwide. The show must go on Having recently attended Home & Gift, it feels wonderful getting to meet and greet everyone in person at the shows again. Although slightly more on the scene of late, COVID-19 is largely a thing of the past and it’s great to feel like everything is back to normal. I will be treading the aisles of Autumn Fair in September and have enjoyed putting together our preview of the event. Check out page 55 to see what’s happening, before heading to page 59 and seeing the slew of amazing brands that will be exhibiting at the event. Autumn Fair isn’t the only show we’re focusing on this issue. We’re also throwing the spotlight on Top Drawer Autumn, Brand Licensing Europe, INDX and a post-show round-up of garden event GLEE. Of course that’s not all, we are also focusing on our Christmas products part two, Toys & Games, Women’s Jewellery & Accessories, and Greeting Cards. That’s all topped off with our regular dose of industry news, new products and insightful business advice.
