April 24, 2018
Ever wondered how your Burnt Soul catsuit, bodysuit, or leggings came to exist, and travel from our studio onto your sparkly self? We are all about transparency here at HQ and want you guys to know all the love and care that goes into making your garments, and who's hands they pass through on their way to your wardrobe.
Meet the Team
Robyn - Creative Director
Robyn founded Burnt Soul back in 2012, she's our head designer and creative, web builder, and a million other things in between! Get in touch with her here.
Anna - Studio Manager & PR
Anna joined the team in 2015 as Robyn's number 2. Sheheads up our PR and marketing, general coordination of studio goings on,events, and organising wholesale. Say hey to her here!
Hannah - Head Seamstress
Hannah is our studio lycra fairy. She makes some of your orders, all made to order items (like the sequin catsuits and kidswear) and any custom creations that you dream up!
Romy - Studio Assistant
The newest addition to our team, Romy's in charge of all things stock, any sizing questions you might have and ensures you get your Burnt Soul nice and quickly. She's also our Queen sequin unpicker, and a dab hand with a paint brush and a staple gun when it comes to photoshoot backdrops!
Our studio is based in the heart of Bristol and is where we design, create, do most of our photoshoots and send out your orders. We've been here for just over a year... and we think we've managed to leave a sparkly Burnt Soul stamp on the warehouse space!
All of our pieces are made in the UK. Half of them are made with us in our Bristol HQ, by Hannah and Robyn (with sequin snipping assistance from Romy and Anna in times of need!). The others are still manufactured in the West of England, keeping everything nice and close with a small team of ladies we've known and loved for years. Check out the video below to get more of an insight.
Where we can, our fabrics are sourced from within the UK. For our prints, they are printed in the North of England, and from 2018 they are on our new eco fabric, Life Lycra. This is made from recycled fishing net and tulle, and helps us to make an impact on the environmental footprint of fashion. For those we are unable to get in the UK, we work closely with a colleague in America.
Let us know if you have any questions about what we do, or if there's anything you'd like to see more of!
Summer's almost upon us... and these Lycra Lovers, Sparklers and Wildchilds are coming to the big city for their biggest store, and their biggest event yet! Head down to Seven Dials and enter a whole world of Burnt Soul throughout May.
