My children and my family are my world. I am a mother of twin boys and come from a close loving family myself. In the early days of motherhood with no sleep, endless feeding and nappy changes we would take the boys out in their double pushchair because people would always stop us for a chat. These little chats kept me sane and reminded me that I had been blessed with two beautiful, healthy boys. These people would comment on how gorgeous the boys looked and I was always being asked where I had bought their clothes from, whether it was their trendy hats, short sets or cute braces. Their lovely comments about the boy’s outfits encouraged me to think of ways I could follow my passion without jeopardizing precious time with my children.
Before the twins were born I trained at the London College of Fashion and went on to work as a design assistant at Ted Baker. I had traveled the world when I was 21 and yearned to get another trip in before I settled down with children. My love for fashion came with me on my world trip and I became inspired and motivated to start my own clothing brand. Then the boys, Ralph and Luca my beautiful twin boys, they came and ‘rocked my world’ and any aspirations of starting my own company were put on hold while I immersed myself in these beautiful, funny, crazy boys. I really struggled shopping for boy’s clothes because I couldn’t find outfits that co-ordinated nicely with each other, so I always ended up dressing them the same. The boys are bigger now and it is time for me to follow my passion and do what I have always wanted to do, work for myself in fashion.
I feel there are other mothers with multiples or siblings who would also like to dress their children in beautiful co-coordinating clothes. Our clothes are timeless, beautiful and functional and I hope by providing outfit options for siblings that the whole family will look fabulous on any occasion. My brand Daisies and Conkers is available online so I can work from home doing something I absolutely love while being close to the most important people in my life my boys, my boyfriend, my family, and friends.
