How Talliah Rose was Born

About Talliah Rose

My name is Briony Gorton & in 2016 I launched Talliah Rose with just £100.

I was a 20 year old girl, living with my parents and working weekends at Pandora whilst studying Fashion Buying & Merchandising at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Whilst in my second year at Uni, I had my lightbulb moment. I remember sitting in my lecture, thinking to myself, 'I can do this myself.. I can be my own boss'.

That evening I brainstormed ideas with my mum Tina & together we decided that the route I wanted to go down was swimwear & with the £100 I had in my account, we went and bought some fabrics.I sat for days sketching out my first bikini design & from there my first Swarovski covered bikini came to life.I didn't know anything about websites, so I modelled and listed my first design as made to order on the selling app 'Depop'.

Overnight my first sale came in and fast forward 6 months and a few more designs, I left my job and dropped out of uni to pursue my passion.As summer came to a natural end, I started searching for clothing suppliers and manufacturers and in the October of 2016, I launched my first clothing range.In 2018, our first website launched and this was the start of Talliah Rose becoming a well know women fashion brand.

Over the past few years, we have grown from strength to strength and when the pandemic hit in 2019, we really exploded on social media & we very quickly outgrew our small unit.In 2020 we moved into our current premises which holds 2 warehouses, 8 offices, a photo studio, a boardroom & a click and collect base for local online customers.But the best part is, my mum, dad, cousin Claire and family friends are now all working for the brand. We really are a family firm and I love it.In 2022 after the world had re opened fully after Covid-19, we decided to open our first Hight Street store in my home town where Talliah Rose was born.. Burnley.You can find our store at 59 The Mall, BB11 1BA & who knows, we may just be coming soon to a High Street near you.

Most importantly I'd like to think each and every person that has supported my dream from the very beginning. Whether that be a new or returning customer, or just a simple like, comment ore share on our socials. I see it all and it means the world to me, so thank you.

Speak soon, Briony xo
