Nobody's Child is a new London based brand with a belief in and commitment to fashion being ethically produced but at the same time competitively priced.

Nobody's Child was created from a partnership between two independent family businesses, one specialising in textiles and the other in manufacturing. Nobody's Child are unique in the fact that they have complete control over their entire manufacturing process which enables them to claim such high ethical practices not usually associated with lower price points.

Here is some more info on this exciting new brand:

NAME OF BRAND: Nobody's Child

DATE IT WAS FOUNDED:  Launched in October 2015 (but it’s taken us decades to get here).

BY WHOM IT WAS FOUNDED: The concept came about when two independent family businesses, one specialising in textiles, the other in manufacturing (but both having supplied many of the UK’s leading fashion retailers) decided to join forces.

WHY WAS IT CREATED: As much as we love fast fashion, and the immediacy and affordability of it, for it to continue, it needs to change. So that’s what we’ve set out to do: deliver the most on-trend pieces at the lowest possible prices - without sacrificing quality or compromising our ethical standards.

WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR BRAND: Nobody’s Child is a London-based clothing brand with a very simple belief: that fast fashion doesn’t necessarily have to mean low quality or questionable manufacturing standards. Fashion has never been faster, and so today’s generation have come to expect on-trend pieces at rock bottom prices. 

Nobody's Child is a completely integrated enterprise. From the weaving of the fabrics to the delivery of the finished garment, we either own or have complete control over the entire manufacturing process. We knit and dye fabrics in our own facilities, we produce garments in our own factories and we distribute through our own fulfilment distribution centre, all of which are ethically managed and employed with our own staff.

WHAT WE SHOULD BUY FROM YOU: Nobody's Child gives you high quality fashion, ethically manufactured fashion, that is competitively priced fashion - so if you agree with this you should buy everything!


My favourite fashion website Man Repeller recently did a post on metallic print skirts - the ones they featured were mostly by Gucci and by super high end designers but there are a few high street versions around at the moment too (see below).

I got my skirt a while ago - I like to wear smart sparkly things during the day, dressed down with a casual top/ t-shirt and trainers.

The only (potential) trouble with these skirts is that they fit tightly around the waist - which if you don't have a tiny waist and a super flat tummy tend not to be very flattering.  However if you wear a longer top or jumper that covers your waist (instead of tucking a top in) the top of your tummy is covered and the problem is solved.
