Carol van Rij, 29, from Hull, is the director of Metallimonsters alternative baby and childrenswear, who launched her business in 2013. After being made redundant whilst on maternity leave and with a background in fashion design, Carol turned to The Prince’s Trust to help achieve her dreams of launching her own baby and childrenswear line. With our support, she was successfully able to achieve her goals through the Enterprise programme. Since then Metallimonsters is stocked in a number of stores worldwide, and is working towards expanding into maternity clothing. Metallimonsters is an alternative baby and childrenswear brand which offers clothing and accessories from birth up to age six.
