I first spotted this brand about 3 years ago, on one of my first trips down to Spitalfields Market. Walking through hundreds of stores and thousands of people, I saw some of the prettiest dresses I’d ever seen. After a quick flick through, I selected three of the dresses, and rotated them around for most of the summer, and (I’m pleased to say!) that whenever I wore one of those dresses, there was always someone who would complement me and ask me where I got my dress from. The answer was: Strawberry Kats.
Strawberry Kats’ mission is to offer newness, quality and fashion forward garments for their customers who want to “own it”; and they describe their line as “fresh, femininity, fashion”. Mainly known for their beautiful strapless dresses, they come in dozens of colours and patterns, making them suitable for both summer and winter (the pictures show a couple of the different patterns available). My personal favourite is one I picked up at the Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model (BINTM) Live Catwalk show in 2011 – black, with a gold paisley design for a mere £15!
In addition, with ethical clothing a hot topic at the minute; Strawberry Kats makes sure to tackle any issues by keeping in close contact with their manufacturers at all elements of the design from start to finish; and they encourage all customers to wash their garments in cold water.
Whilst Strawberry Kats are only trading via a stall on Spitalfields Market on a Sunday at the minute, they’re currently in the process of updating their website, which when complete, will show off their full collection.
