Junior Design Awards 2018 " Glittering Gold" 20 August 2018 12:30
So delighted & a teeny weeny little bit over moon to share such very precious news this month: #JDA2018 Junior Design Awards 2018 awarded @hoitytoityltd “GOLD in Best UK Children's Fashion Brand” category & we keep re reading it, yes it really is the best UK Fashion Brand & not our former highly coveted “Best Eco Fashion Brand Gold 2017”
Back when team @juniormagazineonline first contacted us to say they’d like to transfer our entry into the main stream fashion category this year we were super excited, daunted & a tad humbled.
For a little bespoke boutique organic label like ours to be deemed suitable company for the big players was such a massive vote of confidence. On reflection since our “Highly Commended Best Eco Fashion Brand” just 6 months into our very first year back in 2015 it is what #JDA has always done best, given us their support with an all important vote of confidence, so just wow! with our passion for all things ethical in fashion we have #JDA2018 The ultimate “Style Seal of Approval”
Best UK Children's Fashion Brand Junior Design Awards 2018
WINNER: GOLD FOR BEST UK CHILDREN'S FASHION BRAND
WHAT: A luxury British label creating timeless clothes for girls made using ethically sourced materials with a low environmental impact wherever possible. For ages 2-8 years.
WHY: The hand-made feel of these pieces designed to be passed down for generations really made an impact on our judges who loved the lace panel work, pretty cotton fabrics and exquisite ruffle details. JDA18 judge, Junior Travel writer and founder of Mini Travellers, Karen Beddow said "Exceptional quality and love the designs.", while fellow judge and Top children's Stylist Yvadney Davis simply said "Everything about this is beautiful."
Our hugest thanks to all those who have & continue to make this possible:

Enter our exciting panel of esteemed judges who are not only experts in their field, highly respected social influencers and industry insiders, they are all of course, stylish parents themselves. Each one has been hand selected to ensure that Junior continues to showcase the best-of-the-best.

JDA: Really exciting for this year and for the first time ever (in fact we think the first time ever for any children lifestyle awards) we're introducing a mini panel of judges to really find out what the kids love.
Our mini-panel of 'kidfluencers' (yes, it is a word) will be helping us narrow down what the winners in fashion, travel, books, toys, interiors & lifestyle and food & dining awards with their own discerning eyes.
Each one has been hand selected to ensure that Junior continues to showcase the best-of-the-best - and with their social influence helps o spread the word that Junior really cares about what children want!
The Junior Design Awards remain a signed seal of style approval - and this this the mini-judges will have a say too.
Junior Design Awards 2018 "Shortlist" 12 June 2018 12:00
Wow! so the big news is just starting to sink in & we're super delighted to announce our #JDA2018 Shortlisting..... although it's very exciting, it's also just a teeny weeny little bit daunting.
Our humble little label has previously submitted #juniordesignawards entries in the "Best Eco" category as you will know, however this year #JDA2018 have popped us into the main fashion brand category!
The Junior Design Awards #JDA18 are a unique opportunity to win a luxury award that is - and will continue to be - the most esteemed accolade in the family lifestyle award arena, recognised by brands, clients and consumers alike.

Muddy Stilettos first tottered into the world in Bucks/Oxon in 2011 as a bit of fun. Launched by national journalist Hero Brown, the idea was a simple one: to write a witty but indispensable guide to the very best restaurants, walks, boutiques, day trips, hotels, interiors and events in the local counties and in doing so, perk up her social life.
In Nov 2012 the blog turned into a business, and seven years on, Muddy Bucks/Oxon has become so successful that it has moved into 19 counties, including Berkshire, Cambridgeshire, Cornwall, Devon, Gloucestershire, Hertfordshire, Kent, Leicestershire, Northants, Norfolk, Kent, Norfolk, Surrey, Sussex, Wiltshire, Warwickshire – and of course, Somerset.....thanks to our very own freelance writer and multi-media scriptwriter Sue Tucker,

THE GOLD AWARD FOR BEST ECO FASHION BRAND... HOITY-TOITY
Proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that green doesn't mean you have to compromise on style, Hoity Toity, the self-proclaimed label for precious little madams, is a brand that will please the fussiest customers in every sense.
Featuring delicately hand-painted floral prints that conjure up images of rural idyls and classic silhouettes that give a pleasing retro nod, these clothes stand out from the crowd and definitely live up to their luxury organic status.
With a design ethos that encompasses a wholly ecological approach to fashion, all hand-crafted in the UK, their green credentials are impeccable.
Having previously won a 'Highly Commended' Junior Design Award in 2015 followed by 'Bronze' in 2016 this label goes from strength-to-strength and we are delighted to award them 'Gold' in 2017.
As Zoe de Pass at Dress Like a Mum stated, "Hoity Toity love the designs - they get my vote!"
