Well, this just makes me so proud... Never let anyone tell you you can’t do something, with determination, drive and passion anything is possible!! Thank you @startuploansuk I’m truly living my dream.
“Enough!” said Jane Palmer after being made redundant for the third time.
In 2015, she took out a #StartUpLoan to open @celebratingcurvesbridal, a bridal wear business for plus-size brides in Sheffield.
Jane Palmer, 53, took out a £25,000 Start Up Loan in 2015 to launch Celebrating Curves, a bridal wear business for plus-size brides based in Sheffield.
After being made redundant for the third time from the management training industry, Jane decided she needed to become her own boss and launch a business.
Jane had the idea for Celebrating Curves after struggling to find a retailer that offered plus-size dresses for her to try for her own wedding. Fifteen years later, she caters to 150 weddings on average a year, with customers visiting her from across the UK due to her popularity on plus-size forums.
While the pandemic meant the store was closed for eight months of 2020, Celebrating Curves had a waiting list of hundreds for its re-opening.
Thanks to great online reviews, she now has customers from across the UK, and although the pandemic forced her to close the shop for 8 months, she had a waiting list of hundreds for its reopening
“I relied completely on the £25,000 Start-Up Loan and mentoring support to launch Celebrating Curves and turn my situation around. Looking back, I will always be grateful I made that decision and now have autonomy over my own future” says Jane.
