It’s January, the start of a brand new year. I think you’ll agree that it’s the ideal time to both reflect on the successes of the past 12 months. As well as look ahead to the exciting year ahead and make epic plans for the future.

Hitting the ground running

I’ve come back to the office with more energy and focus than ever before. It’s been brilliant to turn my carefully-made plans into reality. What makes my job even more fun is that I’m lucky enough to be working alongside people when they are focusing on growing their business and taking their beloved product or service to the world. There’s nothing better than seeing people with big ideas, putting them into effect, smashing their goals and making more epic plans for future success.

One of those people is Olivia Tullett. The person behind the eponymous country clothing brand Olivia Tullett Ltd. And what an amazing 2018 it was for her! Olivia Tullett designs and creates stunning shooting clothing and country wear. All from a range of gorgeous tweeds, many of which have her signature leather detailing.

Loved across the UK and beyond

Her designs have attracted attention from as far away as New Zealand and the USA. 2018 saw her busy in her Warwickshire studio handcrafting capes, wraps and shooting gilets. As well as her signature jacket to be shipped all around the world. Olivia also exhibited at the 2018 Game Fair at Ragley Hall and the prestigious Burghley Horse Trials in the UK. Before visiting the Orvis Game Fair in New York State with American distributor Hound and Hare. Just to make the year that little bit busier, she also got married in the Autumn! I can vouch for exactly how manic planning a wedding is!

Future plans

Right now, Olivia is enjoying a post-Christmas honeymoon. But she’ll be back at the end of January and I can’t wait to get started on 2019 with her. I’ve heard her plans for the year and it’s going to be her biggest and busiest in date. There are plans to greatly expand her range of country clothing, shooting kit and accessories. Her highly-anticipated men’s range is also being launched to ensure the chaps are as well-dressed as the ladies. So make sure you keep a close eye on her Facebook and Instagram feeds for bespoke tweed loveliness with true countryside flair.
