Brand Story

We’re the Bristol Lycra lovers making a new kind of uniform for adventure seekers and sparklers all over the world.

We’re all about dressing to express and having fun with the outfits you wear. We aim to bring you unique, confidence-boosting, pieces that call to your inner wild child.

We do this in three ways: 

  • Clever tailoring and pattern cutting to contour curves
  • Mixing panels of prints, plains, foils and meshes for eye-popping visuals
  • Practice sustainable manufacturing so your style doesn't cost the planet

How it started

The idea of Burnt Soul was started by our founder in 2012 and became an incorporated business in March of 2015.

Working as a dress maker and wedding dress designer at the time, Robyn decided to try her hand at a few catsuits for her and her friends to wear to parties and festivals.

Back then there weren't many festival brands that focused on how clothes should make you feel compared to how you looked. Robyn used her pattern cutting skills and fabric knowledge to design catsuits that would empower and embolden the wearer - whatever shape or size.

One of the big turning points for the brand was December 2015 when we made a glass encrusted disco ball catsuit for Miley Cyrus' Milky Milky Milk Tour followed by dressing Ella Eyre in a different catsuit every night for her Feline tour. This put us on the map for performers as well as festival and party goers. Since then we've been honoured to dress the likes of Mel B, Mel C, Laura Lee (khruangbin), Paris Hilton, Poppy Delevingne, Marina and the Diamonds and many more.

We now sell our brand of body confident, eye-popping pieces, all over the world; with fans in the festival, party, yoga, performance, celebrity worlds and beyond.

Where it's going

A lot has changed over the past few years but one thing has become clear - we can not continue as 'business as usual' any more. The damage we're doing to the earth, the climate and its inhabitants is something we must address.

We're committed to 'planet not profits' and these are some of the changes we've made in the last few years...

  • Switched to recycled fabrics where possible
  • Source locally for stationary and office supplies
  • Use fully recyclable packaging
  • Recycle all scraps to businesses and community projects
  • Become official sponsors of ocean activists 'Surfers Against Sewage'

But we don't want it to stop there - we're always on the look out for new fabrics and better ways of manufacturing that will benefit our environment so watch this space!
