Our recent ‘Time to Sparkle’ event was a great success, with Fabulous customers coming along to share ideas and give feedback on our various brands and collections.

Time to Sparkle - fabulous event at Leamington Spa

Dower & Hall hosted a session, inviting customer feedback on which specific pieces and collections we should stock coming into Christmas at Fabulous. We had a real mix of opinions, with some customers preferring the traditional Dower & Hall designs, with pearls or slightly heavier, more statement looks; while younger consumers new to the brand liked the lighter, more contemporary collections. We are currently analysing the feedback, to settle on our own approach!

New British brand, Ania Haie, also hosted a lively session, gaining customer feedback on their delicate, sculptural designs which are ideal for layering and stacking. They are using the feedback to help plan collections for 2019.

Fabulous owner, Jo, hosted a session with Sinade, looking at our own brands, including Mantra, and a new collection currently in development.

The Mantra session was designed to identify any specific charities or causes that we could work with next year; and to highlight any gaps in the range in terms of specific topics or themes to develop mantras around.

Anxiety, as a real issue for young people, came up again and again, with customers identifying a need for more reassuring mantras around confidence, self-belief and calmness; while loneliness in older people came up as a concern to be addressed.

It was a very useful session, to gain specific feedback on current designs and themes; and to highlight areas for the future.

Our last session was hosted by Emma Mascall, of Shape Your Wardrobe, who talked customers through new season trends and colours, as well as giving enormously helpful advice about how to wear mixed metals, layer different necklaces, or take an outfit from desk to dressy.

It was a fabulous event, with useful, insightful and interesting feedback from our customers. Thank you to all who came along – and we look forward to seeing you in-store or online soon!
