The woman behind a new Holbeach fashion business is determined to change the shopping habits of women looking for that special outfit to wear forever.
Jane Rose, of The Clotheshanger Dress Agency, in Boston Road South, is on a mission to make long treks to out-of-town shopping outlets and city centre fashion houses a thing of the past with her commission sales-based business.
She is inviting women to make some money out of quality clothes and accessories they no longer wear by selling them through her agency and making money to spend on clothes they will wear.
Jane said: “If a woman has something in her wardrobe that’s of good quality and she knows she’s not going to wear it again, I can place it in my agency and sell it on a commission basis where 55 per cent of the sale goes to the client and 45 per cent to The Clotheshanger Dress Agency.
“There are dress agencies springing up now because people are more accepting of pre-loved clothes and if they can come in here and pick it up for a fraction of the original price, why shouldn’t the owner let it go and get some money for themselves to buy something they will wear?”
Jane gave up a 25-year career in the food industry to start her agency and she is passionate about making it a success.
“Something that was once an interest is now my business,” she said.
“I’ve lived here all my life and I want Holbeach to be a lovely market town again.”
