Candy Candy is a unique brand of costume jewellery and hair accessories, highly influenced by quirky Japanese style and vintage fashion. The store is a treasure trove filled with the brands signature jewellery and hair accessories, as well as home wear, gifts and a growing clothing range. The company is the result of creator Helena Garcia’s lifelong love for making one-off jewellery pieces and hair accessories. Spanish-born Helena, 33, moved to England following a colourful childhood which included spending her final high school year studying in Las Vegas and staying with a family of Mormons, to finish her university degree at Leeds College of Fashion and Design and turned her passion into a full-time occupation in 2006.
For the last 6 years, Candy Candy has been one of the few chosen local suppliers to Rose & Co, the charming Yorkshire-based beauty apothecary, providing quirky, one-off pieces and collections to the company’s Leeds’ store as well as several other independent retailers across the city. The new boutique now stocks Rose & Co products, as well as host of other specially selected brands which reflects the quirky, fun and vibrant style that has become the Candy Candy trademark.
