Gillian Lees, 29 from Northern Ireland, is founder and designer at Gilly Bird kids boutique, who launched her business in 2014.
Relocating with her husband from Northern Ireland to London in 2011, she applied to numerous jobs and was unsussessful. She always dreamed of running her own design studio one day, and so she turned to The Prince's Trust, and with our support was successfully able to achieve her design studio through the Enterprise Programme.
Since then, Gillian has been able to take on a trainee social media manager to help increase awareness of Gilly Bird and reach a larger audience.
Gilly Bird designs colourful products for babies and young kids. From cuddly penguin toys to personalised wall art and greetings cards.
