What happened is probably the same thing that happens to quite many mothers after having their first child: I completely fell in love with children’s fashion.
So I started to play around with an idea about my own clothing store for cool kids. I have a strong background in marketing and advertising so I wanted to create a web shop that is a bit more professional looking, has a cool vibe and offers something else than every other Finnish web shop that sells clothes for kids.
After doing a whole lot of research, wondering around the internet with no destination, logo designing, html-programming, photoshopping etc. my little company was ready to open its’ virtual doors on August 24th 2011.
At the moment I have a new big project going on: Lilla company will soon be open in English as well and I’m hoping to get customers around Europe. That is the cool thing about web shops: it doesn’t matter where you are or what time it is, these shops are always open for everyone.
Lilla company has already brought so much joy to my life and I hope I’m able to pass this on to each and every one of my customers!
