Inspired by her three wild things ,award winning brand Wild Things was short listed by Junior Magazine as Best New Brand Emerging New talent 2013. Wild Things has proven popular with press and with a strong celebrity following has become a much covetable label of the moment.

Little ones love to wear the strong colours and simple imagery, and grown ups like the subtle retro influences and elements of childhood nostalgia. I’m influenced by the simplicity of Scandinavian design,60’s & 70’s styling, and random naïve elements and whimsical details which appeal to little ones.
A new range of exclusive printed dresses and play products are now avaialable adding to the core range of character dresses, dungarees and jackets.

All items designed,styled ,photographed,and either custom made or made in small quantities from our studio here in the heart of the Lancashire hills in England.

I pride myself on creating colourful contemporary clothes with a truly handmade feel,using detail and techniques which show true craftmanship,enlisting the support of two outstanding machinists during busy periods.

'I hope your little ones enjoy the dresses as much as I do creating them.'
