This week I’m delighted to introduce to you British children’s label, Wild Things Dresses.
Wild Things Dresses is an exciting children’s brand creating imaginative and funky clothes for little ones. Wild Things offers simple, versatile clothing and accessories with a funky contemporary twist. This brand is all about bright colours and having fun with clothes.
Established in 2011, Wild Things Dresses has gone from strength to strength. After years of teaching others about design and working as a freelance designer, Kirsty Hartley decided to revive her love for designing by creating dresses for her own daughter. In 2011, Kirsty decided to launch her own Etsy shop which has been a huge success, having had more than 2,500 sales and gained a celebrity following.
Wild Things Dresses are all about being a child. The clothes are playful, creative and all about having fun and, they’re also appealing for adults too. The clothing is easy wash, easy wear and are all made in small production in Britain.
The brand prides itself on its craftsmanship and using details and techniques which show the handmade nature of all of the products.
From dresses to dungarees, the designs use colour creatively with fun imagery of animals and shapes that children can relate too. The clothes are contemporary with a truly handmade feel. Wild Things puts children’s imagination back into beautiful everyday children clothes.
Kirsty has also turned her hand to writing and has written a truly wonderful book of step-by-step projects to inspire all makers to create something for their own children including dresses, jackets and little accessories. If you fancy putting your hand to something creative then check out Kirsty’s book ‘Wild Things: Funky Little Clothes to Sew’.
My favourite piece is the Cat Dress, its just so cute and mischievous, what’s your favourite piece?
