You've seen how Kimberley looked in all that Isolated Heroes sparkle. Well, now it's my turn. The opportunity for a full on IH dress up day came when we were asked by Cobbled Street Style to be the faces for one of their posts. Cobbled Street Style is a blog all about promoting and sharing the work of independent designers, as photographed in and around the streets of Dundee. We jumped at the chance and knew exactly who we'd like to wear - Dundee designer Isolated Heroes, of course! Living in Dundee, I get to see what an awesome creative community it has. Any opportunity I can find to share this fact is always a treat for me. And if that way involves wearing a whole lot of fabulous sequins then I'm even happier.

Started by Samantha McEwan, Isolated Heroes began in 2012 and has been going from strength to strength ever since. After a recent successful Kickstarter campaign they are ready to grow and expand their optimistic clothing line. I've enjoyed following the journey of the brand and always get excited when new items or collections drop.

There are many reasons I love Isolated Heroes. My top three would be:
  • Number one has got to be the aesthetic. Sequins, faux fur, bright colours. Basically everything that makes me happy. The styles are bold, unusual and recognisably theirs.
  • Secondly, I love the handmade aspect and the fact that the garments are made right on my doorstep. The Isolated Heroes studio is a magical place, filled with fabric swatches and covered in inspiration.
  • And, one of the main reasons why I rate this brand so much is their inclusivity. They offer a great range of sizes and champion all of their customers. From gorgeous plus size girls to unisex street style, I love seeing how their sassy customers style up the items. In fact, I may be wearing pretty much the exact same outfits as Kimberley, but I think it's good to show off how the items look on the two of us. I'm quite a bit shorter than Kim but I still feel fabulous in all of this sparkle. 
You can check us out over on Cobbled Street Style and while you're there make sure you take the opportunity to discover some more awesome independent brands and designers that have links to Dundee. Plus the photography is gorgeous. And big thanks to Isolated Heroes for letting us borrow bags full of their beautiful garments. It was so hard to give them back.
