Colourful cushions from a young Lambeth entrepreneur
Anya Alexandra is an enterprising 11 year-old who has recently started her own business personalising and designing cushions. “I have a great passion for fashion and in my spare time I enjoy sewing and making clothes designs and cushions. I started sewing at age five and my passion and inspiration has developed since then. Now that I’m in secondary school I thought it would be a good idea to start my own business as I started to realise the flood of interest in my work from my family and friends.
I am from Lambeth and attend many Lambeth events in the community. My sales increase each time at these events and my business has started to bloom! I’m delighted! “
Many of Anya’s cushions come in a variety of different colours an dsizes. She designs bespoke cushions according to the desires of hercustomers! She personalises the cushions with initials and uses a variety of materials from lace to diamanté’s to the different type of fabric wanted. Many of her customers enjoy ordering my cushions to add a touch of style to their bedrooms. Anya tells us “The feedback has been great and all my customers have been happy and satisfied. This makes me feel really pleased and enjoy watching ‘Cushions by Anya Alexandra grow’ as a business.“
