What's happening behind the scenes?
Posted on May 09 2021
There's been so much going on recently we thought it was about time we updated you with our latest news- the only challenge will be knowing where to start! So here goes...
The Spring Summer Collection Launches
We were thrilled to welcome six brand new styles to the RS family when our new collection launched at the end of March. This included new block heels on both a low and mid heel height, which bring something new to the collection. Block heels are great if you're getting married outside or aren't too confident in heels, and it's great to now offer these alongside our more classic heels. We also introduced two new flats as our love for wedding flats continues...

The Warehouse Prepares for a Big Move
It's an understatement to say that Brexit brought some big challenges when it kicked in on 1st January. This has definitely kept us busy and we've been working closely with our customers and suppliers to navigate through the ever changing situation. As a UK business we're sad to see the negative impact this has had on UK companies, particularly as they continue to suffer the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
On a brighter note we're excited to be moving our warehouse to Germany, and are pleased to be partnering with an established family run business with the same values and commitment to customer service as us. So we're busy in the warehouse getting all our shoes packed up and ready to travel!
A Gradual Return to the Office
For over a year now, like so many people Team RS have been working from home, keeping in touch via Zoom and the good old phone! We're now used to this new normal but we've obviously missed seeing each other in person. Whilst we're still predominantly working from home, we are all now going in to the office once a week now and it's been lovely seeing each other again.
That's it for now, but there's so much going on no doubt we'll be back with more updates very soon!
Team RS xx
