We Won the Asos Marketplace Competition - woooooooop!!!

So we have been selling on Asos Marketplace and decided to apply for their Asos Homepage Competition this consisted of shooting our ‘Retrograde’ sustainable streetwear collection all made from Bamboo. We needed an awesome photographer and some incredible models! We had met a photographer out on a social in Dinerama in Shoreditch - hit her up on www.kimberleyarcher.co.uk , we kept in contact and decided to work together for the Asos Competition! Working with Fashions Finest on the fashion shows i have been showcasing my Retrograde collection, i hit up two amazing models i worked with Aramatou and BOF! The dream team was set!

After planing looks and searching for locations to shoot we decided to shoot in Notting hill. We all met on a Sunday, the team was a dream to work with - the models had great chemistry and the photographer an awesome creative eye. We all let our creativity loose - it was super great vibes!

After Kimberley edited the images which were so sick she was had great clarity in creating strong commercial and editorial imagery which told our story and helped connect to our customers, we submitted the photos. At work i thought i should check my junk mail as i had not checked it for a while and there was an email from https://marketplace.asos.com/boutique/quillattire i thought i doubt we have won but lets check. I skimmed the email and though i was right but i scrolled back up and OMGGGGGG quillattire had won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I literally fell off my seat in disbelief, but hey ‘Hard work pays off!’.

Our prize will be to have our images featured on the Asos Homepage until the new year! Keep your eyes open for it :)

Never give up on your dreams, good things will happen!

Quillatitre Retrograde Photoshoot for Asos

'Retrograde' Fashion Show - September 2018

We showcased our ‘Retrograde’ collection down the runway on September 2018 and the Connaught Rooms in Holborn. Retrograde was inspired by a trip to Japan, the bright lights, arcades, the hustle & bustle and then the tranquility of Mount Fuji! The bespoke embroideries & artworks all created in house and inspired by the pretty gardens, bright arcades and vibrant streets at night - an amalgamation of fun and all text in Japanese, Chinese and hindi embracing the beauty of different cultures! The majority of the collection is made from sustainable fabrics. Vintage denim is another of our specialities custom made with bespoke hand painted artworks and embroideries. Stay tuned for more :)
