Fashion company Hey Lola! from Andover shortlisted for the British Business Awards

A COMPANY that brings bold, colorful fashion to women of all sizes deserves a prestigious national award.

Hey Lola, an Andover-based company run by sisters Anna Bennett and Rebecca Condie, has doubled in size every year – despite the pandemic and an arduous and harrowing cancer journey for Rebecca.

Rebecca, 37, was diagnosed with colon cancer in the midst of the pandemic.

Now cancer free and back to work, she is delighted to have been honored with a Women Led Business Award at the British Business Awards.

They received more than 450 national nominations.

“We wanted to bring colourful, bold fashion to all British women, whatever their size, and that is exactly what we have done and continue to do.

“It’s this carefree, fun and colorful attitude that got us through the toughest of times and from which we not only fought but won.

“Just being nominated was amazing and it’s wonderful to be shortlisted by 450 other worthy companies.”
