Friday Update: Steps Forward, Steps Back

Firstly, yet again, a big thank you to those of you who have donated to the GoFundMe campaign since the last update, especially those of you who have given some extremely generous donations. The grand total is heading in the right direction but there’s still a long way to go. For those of you who have yet to donate, the link is here.

The highlight of the last few weeks was definitely the Collections Showcase for Angelman Syndrome which took place at The Cube in the heart of Birmingham. I was thrilled to present the Kitted Clothing collection to a room full of bloggers and fashion journalists, and to get some fantastic feedback. Excitingly, we’ve been invited back to the next event which will be taking place in Birmingham in December. More details to follow nearer the time, and you can read more about the event here.

I’ve also been having fun experimenting with stop motion technology to make new social media adverts to raise the profile of Kitted Clothing. It’s been a bit of a hot task in this weather, but very satisfying seeing all the photos come together to bring the clothes to life!

Bringing the clothes to life in a different way, Kitty was kind enough to pose in the flower print harem pants recently for an impromptu photo shoot. She loves spinning on my office chair, and also loved wearing the silky soft pants (she laughed when I put them on her), so was more than happy to showcase her trademark smile for the photos. I hope you’ll agree that the pictures came out beautifully, and look pretty smart on our new flyers too.

Unfortunately however, the perils of being a single mother working on a start up have kicked in. Kitty has been a bit under the weather lately and had to take a few days off school, which delayed some of my Kitted plans for a little while. Things will have to slow down again soon thanks to the summer holidays, but I will still be using the lighter evenings to make a few more pieces, and of course the social media campaigns will continue. Please don’t forget to share, share, share the links – it is crowdfunding after all! – and sooner or later we’ll hit that target together!

Much love,

Donna Rachel.
