Laura Ashley was a Welsh businesswoman and fashion designer. While raising her two children and working as a secretary, she began designing headscarves, napkins, table mats, and tea towels printed on a machine designed by her engineer husband Bernard. With an initial investment of 10 pounds, Laura began creating fabrics inspired by Victorian design. The scarves were so successful, Bernard left his full time job to work with Laura. The moved to Wales, opening a small retail boutique, it was there that Laura began creating smocked style shirts with the help of a local seamstress. The business grew expanding into clothing and other goods, with a romantic English appeal. Sales totaled 276 million pounds in 2000. Laura Ashley died in 1985 from injuries resulting from a fall at the age of 60, but the business continues to thrive.
