Director Jamie Smedley explained: âWe could have gone to the Trafford Center, but as a brand if we are going to grow nationally now, in all outlets, we want Meadowhall to be our flagship store. .
âMy wife’s nannan was taking her shopping at Meadowhall on a Saturday, as was my nannan, so it’s touching for us.
âHaving our first store in Meadowhall is phenomenal. “
Sorelle UK was born out of Manuella Mosca’s love for fashion, according to her husband, Jamie.
He said that in 2014 the entrepreneur used to visit yard sales in South Yorkshire, where she found old stock that she could modify and sell.

And she quickly gained a cult following among the fans.
After only two months, Manuella quit her job as a nightclub promoter and Jamie quit working as a plasterer to focus on the business full time.
With every room in their house overflowing with stock and the business starting to make their own clothes, the couple knew they were about to win.
Now they have made their dream come true by opening their very first store in Meadowhall on Friday.
Darren Pearce, Center Manager at Meadowhall, said: âWe are passionate about supporting local businesses and are happy to be home to some of the most exciting independent retailers and brands from across the region.
“Sorelle UK joins over 40 freelancers at the center, and we are sure it will be popular with our customers.”
The new store is located on Lower Park Lane.
