Thank you for helping Pomodoro reach its 25 anniversary. We couldn't have got here without you!
Our story began in the early 90's.We had decided to launch our own fashion label, even though Britain was in the midst of a recession.
On 6th March, 1992, Pomodoro was born. Our first office wasa tiny room in the basement in Paddiington!
As a start-up business, we had no option but to generate income immediately. We went to India for a monthand began working on a Collection for late Spring. Against our natural instinct, we took a gamble and placed an initial order for delivery in May. We had no other choice, but to sell summer stock in May!
You really do need luck in this industry. After returning from India, we contacted a few customers in April. The reaction was polite.
The weather was still cold and it was raining. No one was looking to buy. But, our customers asked that we call them once we had received the stock.
We borrowed our parents life savings to pay for the shipment.Then, in May, just as our goods arrived in the country, the weather broke and a miraculous heatwave changed our luck and the fate of Pomodoro was sealed. Our team of agents (only two at the time) went on the road and our stock started selling. In July, one customer came to our office and cleared us out of our remaining stock!
If the weather had not turned, Pomodoro might not have been here today.
Being fortunate enough to make a living out of doing something we are passionate about is a great blessing. We would not be where we are today without your incredible support and loyalty. So, thank you for helping us build our dream.
We're looking forward to the next 25 years!
Please come and say hello to us atone of the forthcoming exhibitions and join us for a glass or two of Champagne to celebrate this milestone achievement.
