Alice Takes A Trip

‘Alice Takes A Trip’ is a one-of-a-kind Sheffield-based boutique fashion label run by two sisters. Claire and Laura Middleton have been stitching up a storm since 2006 and now you can spot their individual, hand-crafted garments and accessories in boutiques all over the globe.

Specialising in putting a quirky, mischievous twist on dainty designs, all ‘Alice Takes A Trip’ garments are produced and finished locally and every single one is different. Inspired by myths, fairy tales and Victorian dolls, the sisters see themselves as embodying “the darker side of wonderland”. From their bow-embellished bags and tees to their handmade lace-cuff dresses, they have succeeded in creating a label that is both distinctive and instantly recognisable.

They’re getting some much-deserved notice in the fashion press too; they have already been involved in Channel 4’s “Frock Me” show and last year were given the accolade of being featured in fashion bible Drapers. It looks as if Alice could be set to take a trip to the big-time.

About Georgie Beardmore

I’m Georgie, a Creative Writing masters student at the University of Sheffield. As might be expected from someone who studies creative writing, I love writing (I write a lot -seriously, a lot), and write a variety of fiction and non-fiction things for various online and printed publications. As well as fiction, I most enjoy writing about music, the arts and student living, but I've also written things about living abroad, travel and local projects and events, as well as waffling about whatever takes my fancy on my blog. I am also heavily involved in student radio; I've been part of Forge Radio (the University of Sheffield's student radio station) for nearly four years now, helping run the station over the last two first as Secretary and then as Assistant Station Manager. Every week I present my own weekly specialist folk music show 'What The Folk?' (the show is as pun-filled as its name would suggest), on which I aim to promote new and exciting folk musicians from across the UK, and this year I've also been a part of organising some gigs as part of 'Forge Presents...', Forge Radio's series of live music events. I'm incredibly passionate about both music and the arts, and so am really excited to be part of the Born In Britain campaign and the opportunity to showcase the wealth of talent both Sheffield and the UK has to offer.
