The business was previously an online business selling a variety of homeware and gifts, including top brands such as Ted Baker, Kate Spade,, Miss Etoile, Laduree, Coach House, Tales of London, Five Dollar Shake and Proud Couture.

Katherine Barlow, fashion student, is taking over the back of the shop to host a showroom for her online boutique business, Studio The Label and this will be available to customers by appointment only.

Katherine’s online boutique business was established in April 2016 when she was just 18.

It specialises in unique designs sourced worldwide including embellished beach dresses and bikinis.

Studio the label has frequently held pop-up events in London and Liverpool and often teams up with new and existing businesses at these events such as Bel.Ete, Joys London and Meme.

Charlotte and Katherine are the second generation of Longton sisters to open businesses in the centre of Longton.

The sisters are the daughters of Joanne Barlow who owns Longton clothes shop, Tatters and nieces to Jayne Flanagan who owns popular local café, Mad Hatters.
