For those that haven’t heard of Dollydripp before, can you give us a quick introduction to you and the company?
Dollydripp is an indie fashion label selling clothing, accessories and homewares that are heavily influenced by alternative fashion, tattoos, retro and vintage styles with a modern twist, created by me, Sarah Louise Richards. I was working as a high street designer before starting the business but really I wanted to be creating garments that were a bit more unique, individual and not mass-produced. I’ve always believed that alternative fashion can be feminine and girly. Alternative girls like getting dressed up as much as the next girl, we don’t always live in band t-shirts and skinny jeans!

I studied in my home county of Cornwall and finished college with a Music Practice ND, but after a while I began to feel drawn towards the feel of living in the city and decided to leave Cornwall to pursue bigger things in Brighton. After a year or so, I felt I needed to channel my energy somewhere and stumbled across my old as hell sewing machine and decided to start creating and see where it could take me. After making a couple of little bits and pieces, I was real surprised when friends and family saw these and actually wanted more pieces made by me! So really, I owe it all to them. For as long as I can remember, I have always had an obsessive dislike for the real fur industry and how far it seems to reach. When I was busy creating, I decided that I would found Ferox with the firm basis of promoting cruelty-free animal fabrics; faux furs and faux animal prints. Continue reading
