Our summer dresses are now touring the South of France.
We have the bambi dress on the left which is now out of stock sadly and on the right is the sweet days dress.
We think every day should be a sweet day – we won’t tell your dentist as long as you brush twice a day.
The dress ia also available in 5 other materials – but don’t be shy – if you are really desperate for us to make you a bespoke dress then go ahead and check out the other jersey fabrics available. Just contact us – we are most obliging!
Looking outside at the rain and putting an extra layer on whilst I do so, you would be mistaken thinking it was autumn. It’s officially British Summer Time and we’re just waiting for it to kick in.
We’re quietly confident here at FKHQ that the sun is just around the corner and when it does finally put in an appearance, we’ll be here with lots of summer goodies. Kicking off with some fab tshirts from the Netherlands. Logoshirt makes licensed tees for men, women and children with characters such as The Hulk, Captain America, Assorted Marvel Comic peeps, Che, Star Wars, Batman et al. There’s definitely something for everyone. We have some very cute Heidi tees for children along with the revolutionary himself, Che Guevara (which also comes in ladies sizes).
Gnomeville and Dala horse from Michael Miller have also been restocked and I’ve got some made up into A-line pinafores waiting to be photographed. Again, these will be available early next week.
As a an official Mancunian I suppose I should be doing a tribute to Manchester United and in particular, Sir Alex Ferguson. Wracking brain for what but I do have some lovely red jersey that I can conjure into something. It’ll definitely be a TA-DA! moment when it’s done (whatever ‘it’ is). Suggestions gratefully received!
And finally, to all your mothers, moms, mums, mams etc. I wish you all a happy mother’s day (not in the UK though as we had our mother’s day some 2 months ago). Hope you’re being spoilt rotten.
Welcome to our new look website. It was designed with ease of use in mind. You’ll notice that some of the photos are bigger and better with a zoom feature added. Hopefully we’ll be updating some of our older photos when we can get round to it. We’d love to hear any feedback on your thoughts, suggestions and criticism.
Moving on to our new fabrics that have finally landed; first up is the crazy world of the ‘Night Fox‘. Foxes are still ‘bang on trend’ and coupled with the lush background blue, it makes for a truly funky design.
Second up is our Bambi fabric from Znok. Pink and green hues with the kitsch bambi in the foreground makes for a very pretty design for the summer.
Next is ‘Sweet Days‘ from Lillestoff. Browns, pinks and more sweeties than you can shake a stick at. Very pleasing to the eye.
Finally we have the Rainbowphant from Lillestoff. A very popular print that has seen a reprint lately. Thank goodness as it sold out first time around. This print has everything for me; rainbows, happy faces on raindrops and in your face colours. Everyone who has seen this up close has uttered the words ‘wow’…I kid you not. It goes without saying that these fabrics have been awarded Oekotex certification and are composed of 95% cotton, 5% lycra.
You might have noticed we’ve added to the Funky Stuff on our website. I’ll be featuring these separately over the coming next few days as there are many. But to give a brief summary of what’s in there we have Bora, Flat Pets, Noodolls, Lapin Woodland Dolls and some amazing rainbow muslins by Faye & Lou. I will be doing a feature on the muslins tomorrow so watch this space.
