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”
