As a fashion editor I get to promote and support wonderful Bristol fashion independents but as No Debutante I can promote fashion indies from around the globe. Recently I was contacted by a super cute streetwear brand from the North East of England named Not For Ponies who embellish tops and accessories with sweet and quirky appliques.
The self-confessed cute, kooky and lover of weird stuff, Rebecca Andrews is the Not For Ponies designer and is inspired by bright colours, bold prints and quirky graphics. Rebecca has been creating fun and fabulous creations since 2009, starting with a market stall and moving on to a successful streetwear brand. Rebecca creates small batches of items with each garment being made with a little bit of fun and a lot of TLC.
These cute garms aren't just for kids, these kawaii gems come in adult sizes too plus there is still time to pick up your Christmas jumper or buy a super sweet Christmas gift. From kawaii styles, animal prints to more playful Lazy Oaf kooky graphics, bag yourself (and your kids) some garms from Not For Ponies and support independent fashion in the UK.
The range consists of cutest appliqued motifs embellished onto bold and bright t-shirts and quirky sweats for women, men and kids, with a Christmas range available too. There are also kooky purses and fun tote bags too (great for last-minute Christmas gift ideas).
Be quick though, as Not For Ponies is an online pop-up which will be open until January 31st 2018. An online pop-up is a great platform to show off what you have created and share the fashion love with us all. It’s an easier way to test out the water, find your customer and to get yourself noticed, without putting loads of effort and money into something in one go, which can be super risky in fashion. Not that this is a problem for Not For Ponies as they’ve already featured on This Morning and kids TV show Milkshake! Nice!
As a supporter of independent fashion and as a fashion designer myself, I have experienced and seen so many fall at the first hurdle by putting too much money and time into something only to not see it through. Not For Ponies certainly seem to have their heads screwed on, it pays to be savvy fashionistas!
