Mylk and honey

Mylk and Honey Clothier was founded in 2018 in Baltimore, Maryland,
USA by Tiffany Rice. She and her brand relocated to London, UK
in 2023.

The plus size women’s brand the brand is best known for
swimwear, poolside, and resort-wear. However, Tiffany
occasionally branches off into boudoir, eveningwear, and
ready to wear clothing. Though formally named in 2018, Tiffany began laying the early foundation for Mylk and Honey Clothier in 2012. At the time the designer was a home sewer specialising in up cycling used and vintage clothing for her own personal style. Tiffany’s focus on
swimwear began in 2015 as a response to a greater need being expressed in the plus size fashion world amongst young adults. Mylk and Honey features feminine, playful, and effortlessly sexy designs and silhouettes. The brand is particularly inspired focused on instilling self-love and confidence amongst women of diverse shapes and sizes.


Bibity Bobity Brides

Suzanne had been working as a seamstress for many years (we won’t count how many!) making clothing for friends alongside jobs and working in bridal boutiques, she has passed on the love for creating and designing clothes to her daughter, Nadine. The pair decided to open their own bridal boutique a few years ago, after noticing that there wasn’t a great local selection for curvy Brides and affordable gowns combined with
a 5* service.

Bibity Bobity Brides specialises in creating custom gowns and have launched their own line of gowns found in store which are proving to be popular. Offering an ‘off the rack’ selection alongside custom orders each bride is welcomed into the boutique family with open arms and will often come back to visit years later for a
cup of tea or a christening gown to be made.


My name is Donna Spence, growing up I loved dressing up especially in my mums clothes. However; overtime I created my own designs to my outfits, to ensure that I looked different from everyone else. I became more knowledgeable about sewing and built up my confidence to use a domestic sewing machine. Consequently I knew that I wanted to design and sew my own clothes one day. I continued to sew, learn to thread up a sewing machine and make a skirt from start to finish.

During my 2 years of training up in a professional manufacturing environment. I worked my way up to become a sewing machinist supervisor and trained up a small group of ladies, how to thread a flatbed industrial sewing machine and to 3 thread overlocker correctly. However making my own clothes in my own time I began to sew for friends & family. Overtime I always knew that I had to become a designer and upgrade my skills & achievements to travel to Nottingham,Derby, Leicester and London. I learnt about CAD, used software Al(Adobe Illustrator) PS (Photo Shop) and Vetigraph 3D Pattern Cutting and grading.

Finally I had the opportunity to attend a fashion show, the first show was at London Fashion Week. It was amazing!! My vision has come to light. I am working on DonZ SS24 mini collection to showcase at
Cumberland Hotel in London. I give thanks to God for guidance, perseverance strength and motivation on my fashion journey.

Intotum Adaptive Fashion

Intotum is taken from latin, meaning all together or as one. As an ancient language it has many translations, and Intotum has even been known to mean ‘Unbroken.’

Founded by Hanan Tantush, recent graduate of London College of Fashion and award-
winning adaptive designer, Intotum was borne out of a desire to create stylish, functional adaptive clothing, that can work WITH your disability. Disheartened by the lack of options for the disabled community after witnessing her grandfather struggle to find comfortable yet fashionable clothing following necessary ostomy surgery, Hanan sought out to fix this. Reflecting high
street fashions, with concealed built-in functionalities and promoting empowerment through ease of dressing, Intotum enables independence and individuality for a
marginalised community. Through user feedback, based on lived experience, Intotum endeavour to create a space for the disabled community within the fashion
industry, as a means to project their voices and grow adaptive fashion.
