Since their launch almost a year ago the on trend label Annabel Brocks has been at the forefront of social media and style news. Their range of stylish headbands and scarves have grown in popularity in part thanks to the style setters who have been seen wearing them including Jenny Rudall, Alex Hammond (of Sky Sports Racing fame) super model/presenter Jodie Kidd and dressage ‘IT’ girl Charlotte Dujardin.
So what makes these accessories stand out above the competition and why are they being spotted at events up and down the country this spring?
Firstly, the quality stands out miles. Annabel Brocks designs use a beguiling mix of faux fur, woollen tweeds and velvets to make their distinctive headbands. The quality is high end and the fur has a really expensive look and feel. There are designs for everyone, from more muted earthy tones, to velvet neutrals and punchy fuscia statement pieces. Because all the accessories are made locally to the MD, Belle Brocks, home in Suffolk she is able to manage quality control and stock which means the company can respond to trends and personal size requests in a matter of days.
‘The manufacturing process is really important to me’ enthused Belle. ‘I want my products to be made locally so I can support local economy and my talented team are all a stones throw and they are not just people I employ but like an extended family. Sadly so many companies are now manufacturing abroad but I am determined to stick to my ethos where possible about my products genuinely being made in the UK. I find it very misleading to consumers that certain brands logos have Great Britain included in their logo and marketing to get people hooked and actually they outsource everything to factories in the Far East, I no longer even shop in these shops since I saw where garments where made. It is also important that our products have a very high end, polished look and by working with those who manufacturer my products I am able to oversee every step of the process and I am like a hawk when it comes to attention to detail and I hope this shows. I like to offer a personal approach and have loved meeting customers at events, Burghley is one of my favourite events and I am already getting excited to have a stand there is a dream come true’ added Belle.
It is clear that Brocks headbands are also hits with the younger elite riders, with the highly fashionable Holly Woodhead, Franky Reid-Warillow and Lissa Green all sporting headbands at Cheltenham and the early events this season.
Our customer demographic is really wide. We cater for a style conscious market who want to look smart but also need to stay warm because they work or socialise in the great outdoors’ said Belle.
So what’s next for this ubiquitous label? We hear rumours of new products to be launched at Burghley this year. ‘We have been thrilled with the success of our first collections. But now it’s time to look towards developing new ideas as we keep getting asked what are we doing next so I had to keep the designs coming, I love what I do and have so many ideas which I hope we can bring to life. The new collection of prototypes look amazing and this autumn is going to be a really exciting time for us and we hope our new collection will be just as popular’ said Belle.
