“I came up with the concept of Miss Fortune in 2005. At first I was just hand making a small selection of rockabilly clothing, selling though my website and online auction sites and working from my garage.
I got out of education in 2006 and began to set up the business on a bigger scale, in 2007 I got my first premises and began taking wholesale orders from shops in the UK and Europe in early 2008.
These days the clothing is made at a manufactures in the UK and sold as far afield as New Zealand and the USA.
I have been able to take on a part time member of staff but am still utterly rushed off my feet and hope to take on more staff to spread the load.
2014 will see a move to a different studio and the launch of our new website.” – Miss Fortune [22/2/2014]
