The Women Behind the Name

heathermargaretgrace

The brand Heather Margaret Grace was started by two sisters, Stephanie & Leanne. The name Heather Margaret Grace is an accumulation of the women who have inspired and supported us throughout our lives; our mother and grandmothers. 

Heather (pictured on the left) is our mother who has always supported and pushed us to reach our dreams. Margaret (pictured center) with our grandfather on their wedding day - is our maternal grandmother, who with our grandfather were like a second set of parents to us. Grace (pictured on the right) with our grandfather at the Jenner’s of Edinburgh Ball - is our paternal grandmother who sadly passed away from Multiple Sclerosis before we were born.
