Blog: Bah! Humbug…

According to one of the local freesheets, 83% of Londoners switched their brains off for Christmas at the end of last week. What? If only!

Here we are organising samples, shoots and models, writing news stories and features, panicking mildly about our travel plans for the buying season and generally having palpitations about having to stay away from work for a week, right in the thick of it all, when frankly that will just make more work for when I come back! I’m thinking about asking the interns to come in between Christmas and new year…

Rats, I have become Scrooge. It is official.

But then there is a very real dilemma in here, right? For designers and buyers for salespeople and agents the season is upon us already. What do you think the new year will bring for retailers? Tell me by clicking on the comments box below.

  • Oops have already responded to this.
    Still us Indie retailers got Xmas day off.
    What does the NY hold in store? The loud sound of crunching (it's the credit getting mashed) and the new trend for thrifty.
    ie;not spending anything on obvious things;the trend for conspiscious consumption is well and truly over
    P.Green is going to have to holiday in a tent in Wales this year if he wants to retain any kind of fashion kudos.But spending will continue but in an invisible way;.20 somethings will still spend silly sums on anti ageing creams that they don't need, 30 s/things will spend fat money on freezing their faces and 40 s/things? Well we're going to give up + rescue racehorses in Dartmoor.
