Isabelle Hartley-Nias, Managing Director at Champagne & Lemonade who founded the company in 2011 said:
“I realized that there was a market for Champagne & Lemonade when I was clearing out my wardrobe last year and noticed that there were a number of designer items that I no longer wore. Apart from the fact that they were taking up space I thought that someone else would make use of them and so Champagne & Lemonade was born! We have worked hard to create a site that people will want to shop at and pride ourselves on offering a powerful global service for both buyers and sellers within the luxury market.”
