We were pleased to help the team organising this year's Exeter University Charity Fashion Show fundraising event by supplying them with some of our mens swim shorts and womens bikinis.
Given the restrictions around a public event, they bravely decided to create an entirely digital event and we think they did an amazing job! We were pleased to be alongside other sustainable brands supporting them.
Did you spot our Pineapple Prickles bikini in the picture above?
We wish them the very best of luck with their fundraising - you can support them here.
Their nominated charities this year are:
Dogs for Good trains assistance dogs for children and adults with physical disabilities and for people with autism, dementia, learning disabilities, mental health concerns and more. Assistance Dogs help adults and children with physical disabilities gain more independence through carrying out tasks such as retrieving items, pushing buttons, emptying the washing machine and opening doors. As well as the practical help the dogs provide, the emotional support they give is unparalleled.
St Petrock’s is a small local charity working to address the problems caused by homelessness in Exeter and the surrounding area. Through their homelessness resource centre in Cathedral Yard, and via housing services in the community, they provide a range of emergency, support and prevention services to help people rebuild their lives and make the transition to independent living.
Over 600 people face homelessness and multiple disadvantage in Exeter and the surrounding area each year. If people are not assisted quickly they face increasing social isolation, deteriorating physical and mental health and risk becoming involved in substance misuse, offending, problematic street activity and entrenchment. St Petrock’s vision is for a city without homelessness, with good health, housing and inclusion – a city where everyone enjoys the benefits of security, opportunity and growth.
Finally, a fun "behind the scenes" polaroid shot from the shoot - a big congratulations to the Exeter team!

We find that customers are interested in the story behind and the development of our prints. Lotty uses Mustique as her muse, and here we show how her original pencil sketches translate to our products...
We are great admirers of Lady Anne and her books and were absolutely delighted when she came to see us on Mustique this summer! With International Literacy Day this Friday, we thought reading would be a fun topic ...
