Childrensalon was started in 1952 by Sybil Harriman with a shop in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, selling children’s clothes. It is now a global online retailer, stocking childrenswear from 280 brands, including designer labels such as Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana. With sales of traditional styles surging since the births of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the firm has opened a second warehouse and increased exports, helping profits hit £14.7m in 2016. It is headed by the founder’s daughter, Michele Harriman-Smith, 66, and her husband George Smith, 70.
