A glimpse at the photos Laura had put up as tradional pin ups for her exhibition. See if you can spot the Collectif pieces worn in the photos

Me with Laura at the private view both wearing Collectif. Laura is looking a lot more glamorous though, as I had come straight from the office.

Check out my favourite Cheesecake style photo of Laura's which features lingerie blogger Georgina from fullerfigurefullerbust  in a gorgeous PUG dress. I have this photo pinned up on my desk which always makes me smile!

A bit of a round up.

We have been pretty busy bees over the last few weeks so I thought we should have a bit of a round up of what has been going on in the polka dotty world of Collectif.

A few weeks ago we attended the first ever Great British Tattoo Show at the Kensington Olympia. We met lots of interesting people and made quite a few new fans! We received lots of positive feedback and were happy to meet a few of our long term customers who came to say hello, so thank you for that ladies!

Julia, our lovely model Jessica and Tara in front of our stall.

The stunning Millie Dollar came over for a catch up before doing her amazing burlesque performance on stage.

It wasn't just the ladies who wanted to try on our clothes.......

There was a catwalk fashion show and Julia managed to run over and get a few snaps of Collectif being used.

Day two and Julia is still full of beans, where as Tara is a bit deflated from being in heels for hours!

Julia & Tara

We had an amazing time and would like to say thank you to everyone who came over to have a look or just for a chat!

What else? Oh yes, we have planned a massive give away in celebration of when we hit the 10,000 likes mark on our main Facebook page . We have had some amazing donations from all sorts of companies such as Burlesque Bible, Punky Pins, Kiss and Bake Up, Soap and Glory, Diablo Jo's, Bow & Cross bones and also signed goodies from Imelda May, Bernie Dexter and Sinderalla Rockafella

Some of  the prizes so far!
Visit our Facebook page if you would like to be in with a chance on winning the goodies, the competition hasn't started yet but be sure to keep an eye out for when we hit the 10,000 mark and get going.

A few other bits, the winner of our bag design competition is the very talented Stefania Pesavento who designed these beauties. We are currently putting these in to production so we expect to see them flying off of our shelves by the end of the year.

Coming soon thanks to Stefania Pesavento

One item from this season that has had huge success and been in demand ever since the first picture is our Flamingo Blouse.

The wonderful Jasmin from Vintage Vandalizm.
We will have re-stocked our shelves with this beauty very soon so don't fret if it isn't available in your size.

One last thing. It was bound to happen one day, and it did..................

Julia and Tara

Oh well! At £20 for the Jane top and £45 for the Franky swing trousers it's no wonder this happened!

Have a great week,

Love the Collectif Team. XOXO
