Junior Design Awards 2018 " Glittering Gold" 20 August 2018 12:30

HT Flavicon

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”

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,

Easter in Essaouira viewing distant shores through the eyes of a child or two!! It’s just so endearingly infectious sharing their inquisitive delight & thirst for an insight into all things Moroccan..... So young yet such a spirit of adventure, twinnies travels. Our favourite family fun time game had to be the hunting of the blue door....

encapsulating the intensity of light and vivid colour of Marrakesh serving as the most divine contrast for our embroidered cutwork drop waist dress 

 

HT MoroccoMore magical moments & such a precious image, twinnies togetherness the same but very different. Intensely vivid hues as 'Majorelle Blue' meets 'Cherry Tomato' in the Moroccan gardens of Yves Saint Laurent. A location befitting our stunning handwoven artisan  embroidered cutwork cloth.  Gots certified organic cotton.

 

HTRevisiting our signature heritage prints in subtle hues, no collection is complete without an everyday essential, meet the blossom button eye birdie appliqué Tee. Gots certified organic cotton jersey eco care hand wash or 30° 

 

HTFinally just time to share our beautiful third birthday celebrations, in the most stunningly serene surrounds of Beldi Country Club. Set among rose gardens & olive groves Beldi is simply the most magical rural eco retreat. Housing a unique series of craft workshops, a bakery and it's own mini artisan souk selling Safi pottery, hand-embroidered linens and Berber carpets. So heartening to discover more about their amazing embroidery initiative supporting "Association Les Ecoles et Ateliers de l'Atlas" a not for profit organisation financing schooling for orphans in the mountains outside Marrakesh #soprecious

JDA Gold Award Best Eco Fashion Brand 2017

 

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.

 

JDA Awards 2017

As Zoe de Pass at Dress Like a Mum stated, "Hoity Toity love the designs - they get my vote!"
