MEET ROSE AND ALBERT
Rose & Albert keep me busy, challenged and loved 24/7. Not only have I named my family-business after them, but my almost 5-year old Rose is full of sass and takes after her mummies obsession with clothes & dressing up; and 3-year old Albert is a bundle of energy, obsessed with all things transport – cars, boats and planes – as well as a tiger being his favourite animal. Albert isn’t quite so fond of clothing as his sister – although he definitely keeps me and my washing machine busy with constant dirty knees and elbows. It must be a boy thing 😊
Having worked all my life buying childrenswear for other retailers, it was only when I was pregnant that I realised there was a huge gap for the most beautiful, hand-crafted traditional European designs and so my search and obsession began. I was delighted to secure two of my favourite Spanish brands – Babidu and Artesania Granlei – and on Alberts 1st birthday, Rose & Albert Childrenswear was born.
Operating out of my home, soon enough, I could see that so many of you shared my love of quality fabrics and traditional designs, and soon added many more brands to our collection. Since we’ve launched I’ve been amazed at the support - loved by celebrities, including Lucy Mecklenburgh, Lydia Bright and Chloe Lewis, and with an amazing crew of the most supportive brand ambassadors, social media is at the heart of what we do. If you don’t already, do follow us on Instagram and Facebook where we showcase exclusive previews and ask for you to help shape our business. And then my dream came true when I was recognised and featured by Vogue in March 2020.
Since then, we keep developing and growing and constantly try to give you more of what you want. My commitment is to be the absolute best we can be and to give you more of what you love.
Take care and happy shopping
Owner, Rose & Albert
