I worked at Lerose from 1979 until 1885 with John Telford and Tony Chatterton. Sadly Tony passed away last year. I keep in regular contact with Phil Brown who was factory manager in Birmingham. At Tony’s funeral a good number of old Lersose employees attended including Trevor Mortlock, Mal Hughes, Brian Watts and Val Massey. I also understood that Mike Henry, Colin Stewart  and Dave Mc Quigg had also recently passed away. Always a happy place and the girls had a great sense of humour and remember many names and faces.
Lerose was a quality business and gave me an education in fashion that no university
could ever have provided, the experience  gave me a career which has taken around the world and now finall at NEXT
Great memories and so good to see those names again in these posts

Hi,
My sister worked at Lerose in Henrietta st from 1969 to 1971 in the buying office. Does anyone remember Martin Buy Ian Cunningham Alan Bateman Tony Peaker or my sister Yvonne Graham. She had such fun memories of working there and believes her love of fashion started there. She would buy jersey fabric and made a suit for me which I absolutely loved.
