Home > About Us
I began Stardust in 1998. The initial collection comprised just 6 pop icon designs which were hand printed using a small heat press onto a range of men's, women's and baby T-Shirts. As the collection grew and space became tighter my own home became the warehouse with boxes stacked from floor to ceiling in almost every room!
Inspired by popular culture iconography, politics, punk rock and a splash of kitsch, I aimed to add a sprinkling of pizzazz and panache to young families everywhere. In 2004, I focused on building our wholesale distribution business. I worked hard to build the collection and added many new designs, colours and garment styles
|My first big break came when Stardusts Baby Punk items were featured at the Vivienne Westwood Exhibition at the V&A Museum in 2004.
|In 2006, Stardust's kids pyjamas were awarded Gift of The Year.|
|In 2010, our hard work paid of when Stardust was awarded Lambeth's Best Independent Retailer.|
|Later in the same year we received a highly commended award for South London's best small business.
The Stardust range has successfully grown into a popular brand with the use of vibrant colours, quality fabrics and strong quirky designs to create stand-out pieces. The collection has also developed a strong identity for making and printing personalised kids clothes. The range appeals as much to Mums and Dads as it does the kids, and allows parents to pass on their sense of urban rebellion to their kids, with fashions that are way too cool for school!
From this auspicious beginning our Stardust collection has gone on to be stocked in over 200 shops worldwide including online at http://www.stardustkids.co.uk/ and sold by over 100 party plan agents.
