Britfash | British Design Under One Roof

August 1, 2014

As fun as fashion shopping is, it can also be an insane minefield.  With so many well known retailers and design houses to shop, knowing where to look for quality clothes and accessories whilst supporting homegrown talent becomes an exasperating task.  It seems whilst there is an abundant choice of trend led fashion on the high street, finding something unique is quite another ask.

Online marketplace, Britfash, came about to serve this precise need: fulfilling the shopper’s desire for British design whilst supporting indie British brands.

Checking out the website I discovered an eclectic range of boutique brands suiting various tastes, from edgy and urban to the more chic, sophisticated design.


The lovely guys at Britfash sent me the Espace Velvet Lips Dress.  I love figure hugging dresses and this looked really fun and cute.  It’s a good, thick fabric, and featuring three quarter sleeves and a deep scooping back, the dress is ideal for those occasions when you want to dress up but still keep the look pretty smart-casual.

I found the fit of the dress didn’t work very well with my hourglass figure, despite trying a 12 and 14.  The top part fitted well on my shoulders and reasonably across my bust, but it was too tight at the hips and a tad short for my taste, so I’d recommend it for less curvy frames.



The Comic Book Skirt is my favourite piece and totally ‘me’.  Being a figure hugging pencil skirt in an easy care stretch fabric means it can be worn casually with both cropped tops and tucked in tees.  It’s a playful design with comic book style phrases and doodles, and because it’s so bright and eye-catching I found I only needed a simple top for a wearable retro look.

So these are a few going out and casual looks that can be created at Britfash, but there’s heaps more styles and brands to play around with.  I’ve been eying up some of the new collections, including the beautiful and buttery soft Mariella bag by Peony & Moore – absolutely lush in the French Rose colourway!
