A select range of one off handmade Herbert and Stella vintage items will also be introduced to the store.
Embracing children's individuality has been at the heart of owner Christine Asher's vision, commenting on the new venture she said:
"I was formerly a doctor of Chinese medicine, but while on maternity leave I developed a passion for textiles, patterns and fabrics. Herbert & Stella began when I was sitting at my sewing machine and making my daughter clothes from vintage fabrics and patterns.I wanted to embrace her personality and give her the chance to be individual and have a style of her own. What's unique about our shop is that you'll find affordable clothing and gifts not found on the high street that give parents and children something a little bit different."
For those not in Ilkley today, you won't miss out as the webshop has also launched showcasing the new clothes and gifts - visit www.herbertandstella.co.uk
It seems that the creative entrepreneurial spirit has been passed down through the generations, as Herbert and Stella, the shops namesake, were actually great-great grandparents of Christine's husbandwho ran a haberdashery in the 1900's in Huddersfield.Being surrounded by fabric, pins and clothes is clearly meant to be!
