How it all began
In 2005, I decided to start an online shop - a newish idea back then - that would allow me to run a business from home alongside the demands of a busy family life with three teenagers.
I had always loved the beautiful sleepwear and dressing gowns that my mother had worn but found trying to replace one that she had given me was impossible. Everything seemed to be produced in cheap fabrics and designs, made for younger people in impractical designs.
Where were these lovely things hiding? Surely they must be somewhere?
It was on a trip to Paris that I found a sleepwear paradise. Shops with huge departments selling the kind of beautiful, quality sleepwear I had been searching for, but that was almost impossible to find here in the UK.
I quickly fell in love with some wonderful brands and, very keen to make them available to a UK market, my shop began.
And what to call it? That was easy - my wonderful mother had recently died and left me the contents of her beautiful garden, including a stunning Pink Camellia.
Pink Camellia today
Over 12 years later Iím still searching for the very best in luxury pieces from all over Europe.
This season we are starting to showcase menís dressing gowns from Laurence Tavernier of Paris who have been a staple designer in our womenswear collections for many years. Superb designs and colours as well as beautiful and comfortable fabrics make these robes a pleasure to wear.
Our own Pink Camellia cotton/cashmere ballet wraps and shawls are the latest in a long line that we have sold since we started out and these are made for us by the heritage knitting firm of G.H.Hurt and Sons of Nottingham who find regular fame by providing the babyshawls for the Royal offspring. Light and delicate these are lovely pieces designed to give a bit of extra warmth and comfort.
Do get in touch if you need help or are trying to track down that perfect dressing gown.
