What makes the brand unique : The prints – We usually use Liberty of London as they’re gorgeous and last forever and for the Little ladies they hide a lot of mess!
A quote from a client or journalist? : “Smokks provides beautiful style and functional comfort. With deep pockets for treasure collecting, iron-free material and simple to adjust sleeves – Smokks is the perfect go-to piece for my adventurous girl.”
How many pieces per collection : We don’t have a collection as such, we keep the same styles and add new prints all year round.
Main materials used : Cotton, generally a “lawn” weave.
Your trade show planning for next season? : We showed at Playtime- which was good, however I think being a com business, trade shows don’t really matter that much for us because we don’t do seasonal collections.
Plans for the future ? : Due to popular demand we will add more women’s smokks- they’ve become such a big part of the business- unexpectedly we stumbled across an entirely new market.
