Blade & Rose is a leading British children’s clothing brand specialising in a trendsetting range of leggings and clothing accessories. Blade & Rose was created in 2010 whilst designer Amanda was on maternity leave. Which ultimately led the company to be named after her childrens middle name ‘Blade’ and ‘Rose’. Each piece of the collection is unique and has the trademark design on the bum. A major component of the development was to ensure that the quality of the fabric was durable, functional, would wash well and most importantly, that was soft and kind to children’s delicate skin. The initial range quickly sold out and now the British family business has stockists all over the world including Germany, Switzerland, France, Spain, Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, Greece, Japan, China, Taiwan, UAE, New Zealand and Australia & is now extensively rolling out in the USA. Blade & Rose will continue to extend the clothing range with matching accessories and new designs.
I work on all aspects of the business, designs, new concepts, orders, accounts, marketing & trade shows. Every day is different. Its also important to me to leave at 3pm Thursday & Fridays for quality time with the kids. Absolutely love being my own boss
I have been involved with the business from day one, but have been working full time with Blade & Rose for two years. I deal with international development and distribution. Coming from the outdoor industry I love to play out as much as possible, so I have my bike at the office and manage to ride in the beautiful lake district regularly..
Never got to wear the leggings as a baby as didn't start boys until he was 4 yrs. He does however love the bobble hats we now have. Harvey regularly comes up with new design ideas and when he grows up wants to work for Blade & Rose part time alongside car design and saving all the lobsters in tanks in the restaurants.
Has been the model from day one, although she is now too old to be the crawling baby she models the hats perfectly. When she grows up she wants to launch Blade & Rose pet clothes 🙂 but will probably ride her pony in the morning (she hasn't got one) and help Harvey saving the lobsters in the afternoon.
