Where It All Started
Growing up in the picturesque British countryside of the Isle of Wight, enterprising young sisters Beth & Sarah always dreamed of working together but families and careers beckoned them in different directions. Sarah focused her talents on London’s fast-moving fashion world whilst Beth’s path led her to Singapore at the heart of corporate Asia, but neither time nor distance eroded their long-held ambition to create something beautiful and meaningful together.
