About our History and Founder "Miss Lillian Wells"
... London 1939 and England is on the brink of World War 2.
... aged 14, Lillian Wells is apprenticed to a Bloomsbury dressmaker. She has little education but can already draw and paint and hand sew and embroider as if she were professionally trained, it is her natural gift. As she masters the seamstress’s art, her life seems to be clearly mapped out, she will sew beautiful frocks for the aristocratic families that inhabit the mansions around Bloomsbury Square. And dreams one day perhaps she will have a sewing room of her own, and meet a soldier, and marry, and have children ... and make beautiful clothes for them too ...
