Theresa May A-Z: S is for Small Business

23.5.17


Small businesses are the backbone of the British economy, and the Prime Minister is a fierce champion of entrepreneurs in all industries.

May is a staunch supporter of small fashion brands, and has regularly worn items by forward-thinking designers during her time as Prime Minister.

Two notable examples are Pazuki and Louison d’or. May has worn their respectively gorgeous scarves on many foreign trips. Taking its inspiration from nature, Pazuki’s range of designs are delicately intricate, and the PM owns several scarves from this London based brand. (You can read my full post with Pazuki’s founder here.)

Louison d’or really appeals to Theresa May’s quirky side. Who else could wear a faux fur collar with two flashes of orange and purple to the World Economic Forum?

And it is not just on professional trips where the PM champions our small businesses. On a recent holiday and election-deciding trip to North Wales, May visited a craft centre in the village of Dollegau. Purchasing a set of Welsh slate coasters and two handmade silver rings by Anna at Celtic Treasure, May reinvested in the small community she was visiting- boosting visitor numbers and sales in the process.

It’s perhaps more important than ever to shop local, and with so many fantastic small businesses making their mark on our high streets, it is fantastic to see the Prime Minister practicing what she preaches.
