Lily Stone

“New womenswear brand Lily Stone London was born from the creative vision of former fashion model & Sky Sports TV presenter, Jessica Seaman and the business acumen of ex-Nicole Farhi Managing Director, David Leavens. After meeting through a family friend David immediately saw a natural talent in Jessica who had cut her fashion design teeth through her popular childrenswear brand Poppy & Ned and the two embarked on the creation of Lily Stone. The first full collection for Spring /Summer 2011 has already been snapped up by several leading retailers including Selfridges of London & online boutique and with the likes of both Kylie & Dannii Minogue already seen supporting the brand, the future looks bright for Lily Stone.”
