It’s been a whirlwind end to the year at Hayfield HQ, with plenty of Christmas orders to process and dispatch, bespoke orders being finished and sent out, and some exciting PR coverage too! Hello! magazine has featured Sophie, Countess of Wessex wearing our best-selling navy fedora with a black leather band! The Countess of Wessex has been snapped several times now wearing our fedoras and we are over the moon that someone so stylish and elegant has picked our accessories brand. You can take a closer look at the hat she’s wearing here.
It’s a fitting end to what has been a truly incredible year. We’ve been busier than ever, taking the trade stand to Badminton Horse Trials, The Game Fair and Burghley Horse Trials. Events are crazy, tiring and fun, and we love every single moment of them! Social media has made connecting with our customers online easier than ever before, and we’re lucky to be running a small business in a time when we have these tools at our fingertips, but there’s nothing quite like meeting people face-to-face! We’ve unveiled new luxury summer hats at the shows, which went down a storm, and Hayley has completed 100’s of bespoke hat and feather pin combinations in 2022. Lots of lucky people who now have a beautiful, unique Hayley creation all of their own! We’ll soon be getting our thinking caps on to figure out what new products or events might be coming your way in 2023, and we are always interested to hear any ideas our customers have. But right now, we’re completing the last frenetic days of Christmas preparation before winding down for the holiday.
If you’re lucky enough to unwrap something from Hayfield England this Christmas, then we would be over the moon to be tagged into your images! Even if it’s a beloved Hayfield hat you’ve had for years and years, still tag us in those festive snaps as we never get tired of seeing how you style our products. It’s the perfect moment to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who has supported us in any way this year. Every single action is appreciated, from purchasing our products to recommending us to people, sharing us on social media and wearing our hats to public events to help spread the word. We think we have the best customers out there, so thank you all so much!
Have a wonderful Christmas celebrating with your loved ones, and a very happy New Year! Who knows what the next 12 months will hold for us, but you can be sure we’ll be right there raring to go when January comes around. With lots of love and festive cheer from Hayley and the rest of the team here at Hayfield England – Merry Christmas!
