Inspiration behind Lacuna Child
Who was my inspiration...
The inspiration behind Lacuna Child comes in the shape of a beautiful redhead, born in December 2017, who changed our lives forever. My eldest daughter became a Mumma, my youngest an Auntie and I became Glammy (derived from knowing I would not be the sensible grandparent)!
What I didn’t expect from my new role was the awakening of a long-time desire to have my own business. An opportunity to tap into the creativity that had been reserved for weekends only, as weekdays were spent working 14-hour shifts in a hospital.
The perfect answer was to create a beautiful, yet practical, collection of children’s clothes. This allowed me to fulfill my desire of having my own business, in a way that also meant I could stay connected to my grand-daughter as she lives in America!
In August 2019 I decided it was time to go for it. I dusted off my sewing machine, began creating and designing pieces, and the rest as they say, is history!
I now have an update to my story...
Our second grand-daughter was born in November and I went into 2021 with new infant wear designs buzzing around in my head, inspired by the birth of our beautiful grandchild. As our eldest grand-daughter grows, so does the size range and this will be reflected in sweatshirts and joggers from January 2021.
