ABOUT THE DESIGNER

Way back when Lily Anna Rose was created with just a handful of pennies. It was the desire to create beautiful stationery for loving couples, furthermore making a better life following a catastrophic series of events.

It was clearly a bold decision. ‘I wasn’t going to be dissuaded by the struggles of being a single parent or a redundancy. Despite the £50 budget, I poured love into the Lily Anna Rose adventure and was nominated Barclays Trading Places Top 100 Business in Barclays Trading Places Awards, 2009. Meanwhile scooping joint winner in the regional final for London and the South East at the Wedding Industry Awards.

Years on, Claire is happily married and Lily Anna Rose has blossomed into a brand that is commitment to offer sustainable stationery. Email to discover more.
