Danielle Grey found out she was all-clear from cancer aged 21 after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma at 17 and now, aged 26, she has launched Huxster in Hatter Street.

Miss Grey, who studied fashion at the London College of Style, said she wanted to bring something different to Bury.

She said: “At Huxster the vintage is 1900 to 1950 and the retro is a few 60s’ and 70s’ things.

“My point and ethos is, you can be original.”

Miss Grey has shadowed stylist Wendy Elsmore and has had a placement working for the fashion brands of celebritiess Holly Willoughby and Fearne Cotton for Very.

She has also made some costumes for the show Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model. The shop owner said she has taken inspiration from Audrey Hepburn and Charlie Chaplin, who both went through tough times.

She said she was supposed to be going to university to study forensic psychology when she walked past the empty shop and “something sparked in me”.

Miss Grey still plans to pursue her studies, but over the next two years she will focus on growing the business.
