A SINGLE mother from Leamington has battled beyond injury and illness to launch her own business selling children's clothes.

Jade Smith was involved in a serious car crash in 2008 and later diagnosed with Fibromyalgia – a chronic pain and fatigue syndrome – which forced her to give up a hairdressing career.

But now the mum to nine-month-old Ruby Mae has bounced back by setting up the successful 'baby bow boutique' business via Facebook, specialising in unique headwear for babies.

And the 29-year-old has now joined forces with friend Rebecca Roper to re-name the business 'Beau's Boutique' and create and sell unique clothing for boys and girls aged up to four.

Jade, who will help officially launch the company in a Nearly New Sale at Gap Community Centre in Warwick on Saturday morning (April 7), told the paper: “I wanted to return to work, doing something I would enjoy but could also fit in around my condition and baby.

“This is a new concept of children’s clothing, offering beautiful handmade unique items.

“We are inspired by fashion, such as Japanese Kawaii (cute), the rock scene and vintage chic and will also take on custom wear where clients can request their own designs.

“With our range including recycled branded items we can also lower our carbon footprint while cutting costs to the consumer.”

A first big break for the fledgling company will come on April 25 as it co-sponsors a business networking event at The Glass House in Warwick Street.

The evening meeting will see a presentation of the business given on stage and Jade added: “It stands to be a huge opportunity to showcase our company in front of 500 VIP guests and decision makers.”

Call 07545 825834, or search 'baby bow boutique' on Facebook, for more information about the company.
