N16 VINTAGE supplies global fashion retailers with UK designed and made product, allowing their brands to be trend forward, embracing an ethical philosophy of repurposed and customised fashion with vintage inspired clothing and accessories. Customers include Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, exclusive International independent boutiques and Asos. The brand has a growing licensing division and carefully selects partners for significant and powerful collaboration, which fits with their brand character.
Empowering Strong & Individual Women:
The Frida Kahlo deal represents what N16 VINTAGE see as a great opportunity to endorse its support of female creative power. Frida Kahlo is a style icon for women with her own distinctive and colourful clothing. With global attention on the forthcoming Frida Kahlo exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and an increasing acknowledgement of women and their achievements in business and life, N16 VINTAGE aims to offer fresh and creative interpretations of the Frida Kahlo style for a new generation of stylish women.
N16 VINTAGE is particularly excited about this license collaboration because it resonates with the N16 VINTAGE business, which was started by Josephine Starsmore, a Frida Kahlo fan.
Speaking about the new licensing collaboration the founder and Creative Director of N16 Vintage, Josephine Starsmore said:
“We love to create at N16 VINTAGE and we are passionate about offering an alternative in fashion, so we are delighted to be in a position to celebrate Frida Kahlo’s unconventional approach to life. She was and still is such a significant figure for female creativity, strength and individuality, values which are at the heart of our business”.
Frida Kahlo inspired product is already underway at N16 VINTAGE and will be available online from Mid May as part of the ‘Reclaimed Vintage’ range from Asos. A premium collection will be shown as part of the wholesale RAGYARD range available at September trade shows and marketed at world renowned retailers such as Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and via the brand’s own website ragyard.com and it’s own shops in Notting Hill and Shoreditch from January 2019.
