Hi my name is Angela and I am the Director of Mariposa Children's Boutique. I set up my company in 2011 after spending 6 years living and working on the Costa del Sol, Spain. Whilst in Spain my work was always based in Real Estate however my niece and nephew were both born and brought up in Malaga and I spent alot of time clothes shopping with my sisters. I fell in love with the Traditional Spanish Baby & Children's Clothing and knew that when I had my own children this is how I would love to dress them. During the recession work in Spain dried up and I decided to move back to the UK, for 12 months I researched the Spanish clothing market and sought out manufacturers and designers and in August 2011 I set up Mariposa Children's Boutique.
Starting out I spent 6 weeks back in my Spanish home and I travelled long and far meeting with different manufacturers to view their clothing ranges and see the quality for myself and then I chose 3 designers to start working with initially. I was the first UK customer for Miranda and Pangasa and both of these brands are now very popular in the UK. I continue to work hard looking for new and upcoming designers and manufacturers so that I can bring in new designs and ranges that are not already available to buy in the UK. I also work with some manufacuturers now that enable me to design my own clothing and choose different fabrics which is great as I can get pieces ordered that are unique for special occassions. We are now branching out and looking for designers in other European countries so watch the website for exciting news and new ranges.
So far this family business is based online only, I have previously viewed different retail properties in Crosby and Liverpool Centre and this still remains my aim however since having my own daughter Anabelle in July 2013 my priorities have changed. We will however continue to look for our perfect shop in the right location and once we have found it and the timing is right we will branch out to the next stage and look forward to doing so.
In the meantime we are working hard to improve our website, we continue to grow week after week and have happy customers Worldwide which makes us very happy and content with the clothing and service we provide to all our valued customers.
