From hand-stitching handbags for friends and colleagues in our basement flat in Bayswater (until my mother lent me her sewing machine which neither she, nor i had any idea how to use), then taking snapshots of them on the aforementioned flat’s front door and writing my own press release; to being stocked in Harrods and featured in Vogue and Tatler,
All within 6months, (including 1 overnight stay at Heathrow airport lounge when I missed the plane to find our manufacturers which my husband Rufus Pearl- co-founder of Pink Lining luckily made, along with the original and only, 7 hand-stitched Pink Lining samples!) From hand tagging bags with willing friends, (paid in wine or champagne for larger orders), in-between breast-feeding my first daughter and sidling past more and more boxes of bags for stores in London, Paris , New York and Japan. Still from our 1 bedroom basement flat…
…To our first Pink Lining office off Portobello Road in Notting Hill, complete with new Pink Lining team members , and Molly the dog. Along the way stopping at the Cheltenham Gold cup (for a successful limited edition collaboration with Thomas Pink).
