It’s that time again for another awkward selfie! I feel like I need to introduce myself properly to all of our lovely new followers and tell our existing just a little more!
I’m holly, founder, creator and maker of Florence & bunny.
Im 29 years old (30 the end of the year but I’m trying not to think about it! ) 29 forever!! It’s a good age!
I have a wonderful husband and 2 gorgeous kids, Florence (3.5 years) Abel (13 months) and we live in the beautiful town of leigh on sea in Essex. F&B HQ is currently in my dining room (patiently waiting for a studio to be built!) I’m from a womenswear fashion background but didn’t return back to work after having the kids. Instead have put my heart and soul into creating my 3rd baby, Florence & Bunny. Ive always loved couture and theatrical costumes, clothes that make a statement but that are beautiful and tactile. I have never been good at designing everyday clothing, I’ve always wanted to design something that has that wow factor! I loved dressing up as a child and had always dreamt of having my own dress up brand, a few months back took the plunge and started off making our crowns and now have a whole collection of prettiness! I love anything a bit quirky/eerie/unusual (whimsy) most weekends we go antique hunting so I wanted to bring that into the brand. Every piece has a whimsy feel to it, fun, a bit quirky, vintage looking and a bit couture.
I’m a very creative and energetic person, my brain is working 24/7 and I find it very hard to switch off. I’m a perfectionist and quite critical of myself and my work, I give myself a hard time!
I’m thankful that I’ve met some truly inspirational people already and had a few opportunities to work with some other local talented brands. I’m really hoping that F&B goes from strength to strength! we already have lots of ideas for a mini Xmas collection and photoshoot! And also have other other collaborations lined up! Eeek!! Oh it’s just all so exciting!! #florenceandbunny #kidsdressup #aboutus #enchantedforestcollection #whimsical #maker #creator #founder #inspiration #crowns #wands #capes #collars #tutus - 5 hours ago
