Retaissance has unveiled a prestigious ecosystem of partners it will be working with to help leading independent jewellery labels further their growth and support retail relationships in the UK.
The collaborative support offering is unique in the market place and provides an unrivalled package to increase market share and activate new markets.
Retaissance has forged alliances with platforms such as NuOrder, Press Loft, Maison & Objet, NAJ, Top Drawer, Spring Fair, INDX, WILD and First Insight.
It will also be working with Professional Jeweller as part of a multi-channel strategy that in total will allow it to reach more than 1.3 million users.
The multi-brand retail agency’s business model – which provides exposure to valuable D2C market places – promises to deliver the wholesale management, business development and fulfilment required to boost sales.
Cathie Osborne, founder and managing director of Retaissance, explained: “Our team have developed a package that will deliver everything a brand needs to increase sales and make the most of the current opportunity for independent labels.
“Our focus has been to provide the best tools, sales opportunities and technology available, to eliminate cost barriers, and most importantly open up a fair playing field for independent brands that has been previously unheard of.”
Brands will be able to set a budget for their package and then pick the services they want, depending on the goals they want to achieve and countries and markets they want to export to.
Retaissance’s wholesale managers will be on hand to provide advice, as well as additional support with approaching new stockists.
The international trade package that it offers utilises a broad network of partners and contacts to provide a full portfolio of services to help brands establish and promote themselves abroad.
The new package comes following enhancements to the Department for International Trade’s ESIF initiative to support UK businesses in exporting their products abroad, and potential eligible funding from the DIT in 2021.
Ms Osborne said wholesale models are changing in response to disrupted supply chains and a need to reduce risk. Consequently, retailers are wanting demand-focused models that independents are best-positioned to provide.
She explained: “The wholesale model changes and retailer requirements for low minimum orders and faster replenishment, combined with consumer preference towards slow fashion and story driven independents, gives brands a fantastic opportunity in 2021 to grow sales.
“We wanted to help maximise this. To build a stronger retail industry, we need to make a collaborative effort to support our ecosystem.”
