By Sarah McComb Source A child’s first foray into the world of fashion was not the bright and early morning sun but a visit to a store dedicated to making it easier for them to feel beautiful and fashionable.
It was a shop called the Brightside, located in the heart of the capital’s fashionable Kensington and Chelsea district.
Brightside’s shopfront, the only shop in Kensington, was a small, dark, dingy shop where customers could buy a range of luxury products including high-end nail polish, nail curlers, nail brushes, nail polish remover and nail trimmers.
“We were doing something different,” said the shop’s owner, who did not wish to be named.
“The bright and bright world of retail is changing.
You see more and more children going to independent stores, they’re shopping for themselves, they want to make something special and unique, something that will last their whole life.”
The shop was run by a small group of women, and the shop was not always successful.
But by the time Brightside closed in January 2018, it was still operating with more than a hundred people employed, including its two owners, and it was seen as a success story by many in the local community.
A growing number of children were starting to shop at the shop for their own personal, creative or cultural reasons, according to the owner.
In February 2018, the owner and her team decided to sell the shop, and they were planning to open a new one in the same space.
The new shop was called Brightside Beauty.
And, although the store was only open for a few days, the shop started to feel like a normal, busy retail outlet for young children.
They could find makeup, nail products and even nail curling tools at the Brightsees store, which sold a range with brands like Kincora and Nailbox, among others.
One shop in particular caught the attention of local residents, who noticed the bright, colourful designs on their own children’s outfits, and who were not shy to ask for them.
Many children were wearing bright colours, and many people commented on their cute little faces.
Soon, Brightside was attracting children who were looking for the same thing, and now it has become one of the most popular stores in the area.
Since the shop opened, Brightseas owners say the popularity of the shop has increased.
According to the owners, the Brightsides shop has been seen as an example of how fashion can be a good thing for children.
“I’m very proud of Brightside’s success and its impact on the community, and we’re hoping to continue to grow,” said Brightside founder and owner, Sarah McCombs.
(The Sport Bible / Sarah McCombs)”Kids are so different from adults.
They don’t want to buy what they think is the coolest, they like the things that are new and they like to make their own things.”
Brightside Beauty is also a place for parents to find affordable beauty products.
