Annabel Brocks - The Lady Behind the Brand
Annabel is based in Suffolk with Mike (her long suffering, patient, "rock"!) stepchildren Holly and Lucy and entourage of animals.
Annabel worked as Lifestyle Manager and personal shopper in London for over a decade with 10 years prior to that dabbling in all sorts of roles but that's another story!
Annabel's career path changed in a new direction after two unfortunate journeys with breast cancer
A country girl at heart she decided to relocate to Suffolk in 2014. It was perfect place to start a new chapter following a couple of hellish years with her health setbacks
Since going through chemotherapy Annabel found the British winters a challenge due to garments lacking the combination of warmth, colour and style that were suitable for her outdoors lifestyle, so the journey of the Annabel Brocks brand began. It was this fate that lead Annabel to create an unplanned brand that has gone from strength to strength in only a few years. Having always had an interest in colour and design Annabel now has the perfect job involving both.
Not one to be beaten by the 'C' illness she used her recovery time in her studio to design a range of products that she felt were missing from her own wardrobe. Little did she know it would take off so quickly with the Faux Fur Reversible head warmers instantly becoming a huge hit with the equestrian world. The first trade stand at Your Horse Live to launch the products was visited by Charlotte Dujardin, Jenny Rudall, Mary King to name a few, and Annabel didn't get time to draw breath the enquires and press attention immediately confirmed that Annabel had launched a product that was new, fresh and instantly in demand.
Original yet versatile designs are on-going and the collection growing every year due to the demand from her loyal customer base she hopes to continue adding an injection of colour and glamour into everyones summer and winter wardrobes.
Annabel is passionate about helping others and support a number of charities including, MacMillian, Breast Cancer Now, Children with Cancer UK, The Emile Faurie Foundation with the latest charity NHS Charities Together.
