After the birth of her 2nd son, Jack Jude last year Oliver & Bean came to be and now 1 year later we celebrate their 1st birthday with them, Tropicana tea party in Wonderland style! With an aim to “WOW” little people (and their parents) season after season, garment after garment even, Oliver & Bean creates classic pieces with a trendy edge. Every design is inspired by the specific print or texture of the fabric chosen and tells a quirky story.
Oliver & Bean grows from the constant feedback received via customers and other brands. Always trying to improve by accepting faults & failures and improving on criticism – not an easy task seeing as this is like Taryn’s 3rd child…
“Starting her own thing was a tough decision and at times working into the early morning hours hasn’t paid off but then it’s the compliments and love I get from the people that support Oliver & Bean; a simple message or post expressing how wonderful an item is, this really does make my job worthwhile. I treasure the support structure I have at home and this makes what I do the best job in the world!”
After just 1 year Oliver & Bean already boasts with an entire boy’s and girl’s range as well as a small Mommy-and-Me range AND as of July they launch maternity wear too.
With dreams of growing their social media following, expanding into more stores, owning and running their own small factory and starting a blog… Oliver & Beanis going BIG and we can’t wait to see what the future brings.
Happy Birthday Oliver & Bean! May year 2 be even more colourful, fun and utterly mad!
