Briony (26) said: "We have had an amazing response from the public so far.

"It means so much to me to have my first shop in the place where I grew up.”

Briony's online clothing business is an international success with 211k followers on Instagram coupled with the 223k followers on her own personal account.

Briony's business took off when she bought £100 worth of fabric and ran up her design for a bikini which sold out and within six months Briony had made £100,000 at the age of 20.
