Thanks so much for visiting Laurel Heath. The collection has been a day dream in my mind’s eye for many years. I have spent my career in the recruitment industry, but I have always sketched and thought ‘wouldn’t it be fabulous to be a designer’. However, with no formal training and it being so far removed from how I made a living, I always felt it was just a flight of fancy - my imaginary world.
Then two years ago, I had to have major surgery and thought I’d have a look for some suitable nightwear to take to hospital and recover in…. garments that made me feel stylish, comfortable and confident enough for friends and family to visit me – but there was nothing other than cute teddy bears , ditsy florals or skimpy lace , none of which fitted with my aesthetic. I scoured the internet and went on many shopping trips with no joy. I thought surely I’m not the only woman who wants to potter around at home and still look stylish?
So over the course of the last 2 years I have turned my little pipe dream into a reality. I have designed a capsule collection of nightwear for women of all ages who do not want to go to bed in something that looks like it’s been designed for a 5 or 85 year old - which is comfortable enough to sleep in and stylish enough to be seen in. No knees on show – what happens to your knees?!? No belts to unravel. No frills or flounces, just muted colours that are kind when your face is freshly cleansed or sleepy and effortless one size fits most shapes that flatter the female form.
It is all made by the most fabulous group of ladies who sew each garment with love here in the UK.
