Creating Ripples - Jan and Rebecca

Jan and Rebecca
Jan and Rebecca launched Who's Wearing What Boutique Experience in 2009 with the idea of selling womenswear through venues and pop-up shops in East Sussex and the Kent borders.

Both women had successful careers in the big city before deciding to relocate to the south coast in their mid-to late 40s. Both women are British; Jan is Scottish and was born in Glasgow and Rebecca is half-English and half-Jamaican.

What started out as part-time business with a turnover of £16,000 has become Who's Wearing What Boutique, a High Street womenswear retail business employing a manager with a turnover of just under quarter of a million pounds in 2015 and now employs a Manager.

Rebecca says, "The business has been a huge creative outlet for me and has given us a sense of achievement and satisfaction".
