JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 SILVER WINNER: Best UK Fashion Newcomer
WHO: House of Margaux
WHAT: An independent baby and children’s fashion brand designed and ethically produced in the UK. Every item of clothing within the collection is hand cut, hand sewn and packaged within the UK.
WHY: Our judges were blow away by this founder’s story. Not many people are plucky enough to start a fashion label from scratch at their kitchen table but that’s exactly what dental nurse, Cassie did when she was furloughed during the pandemic. The House of Margaux range of soft organic cotton rompers and leggings covered in bright graphic prints really impressed our panel who loved the simplicity of design, the fantastic quality and the fun but cool prints.
