Nusrat Ghani, the Conservative MP for Wealden, has visited Fairwarp-based lingerie, nightwear and swimwear business Liberty & Love which empowers women of all ages to feel good in their skin every day.
Liberty & Love was recently founded by Fairwarp resident and mum of three Beth Kates, a former dancer and vegan chef. Bombarded with adverts featuring women with perfect airbrushed bodies, Beth felt frustrated and forgotten about as a customer. With no retail experience Beth launched Liberty & Love for real women of all ages, shapes, and sizes that everyday customers can relate to.
Liberty & Love’s lingerie, swimwear and nightwear products are vegan, ethically sourced from small manufacturers, and high quality at an affordable price. Beth also offers a personal bra fitting in her studio in Fairwarp where women can feel safe.
Nusrat Ghani said: “It was a pleasure meeting Beth and learning more about her new business. I fully support her in her quest to change negative views on body image and instead empower and celebrate women of all shapes and ages. Beth has created some gorgeous pieces of women’s wear that can be worn every day, anytime. I will always support Wealden businesses and I am pleased that we have this fantastic new female-driven and female-focused business in Fairwarp.”
Founder Beth Kates said: “I do not relate to the unachievable images that dominate the marketing of women wear. At Liberty & Love we are passionate about women feeling good every day and empowering them to love the skin they’re in. You can have beautiful nightwear for movie nights with the kids and still feel glamorous. You can have beautiful underwear when you are just being you, every day.”
