Quotes

Her mum, Kara, said: "It makes me so proud that Grace touched the hearts of so many people. Since the video has been online so many people have said that they loved watching her sing. They said that they were moved to tears."
Her proud mama writes in the caption, "Here she is doing what she loves most - singing. Grace performed this song only days after hearing it for the first time!"
"With that in mind, we brought Sarah in to the business towards the end of last year to explore the options to accelerate our luxury strategy. We're confident that Very Exclusive is going to be a massive success."
"After months of market research and testing, it’s extremely clear to us that there’s a real appetite – both among existing customers of Very.co.uk and women who don’t currently shop with our brands – to shop a standalone luxury site and have the option to spread the cost. We’re confident that Very Exclusive is going to be a massive success."
