5 Reasons to check out the OBD Clothing Kids Range

OBD CLothing Kids CollectionThe school holidays are here, and the latest range to land at OBD Clothing will ensure they’re kitted out all summer long, come rain or shine.

Perfect for looking cool and staying comfy, OBD Clothing have launched our very own range of kids tees, turning the essential wardrobe staple into a fresh and fun fashion must-have for style conscious kids.

Our children’s t-shirts feature a classic crew neck design, and are available in a range of sizes suitable for tiny tots to trendy teens, and show off a great range of slogans to express the big personality inside each little person.

The OBD Clothing kids clothing range brings unique and versatile casual wear to babies to teens, and here are just a few reasons why you should head on over to check out our new kids range:

It’s all online: Going to the shops with the kids requires the preparation and timing of a military operation, and often the patience of the saintliest saint, but OBD Clothing have arrived to take the stress out of shopping with the little darlings. Put the kids to bed, grab a brew and a couple of biscuits, and settle down to browse through our exclusive collection of on-trend kids clothing in peace. With true to age sizes, our baby t-shirts come in sizes 3-24 months and our kids’ t-shirts in sizes 3-13 years, you can be sure you’ll receive the perfect fit for your little and not-so-little ones.

Tough stuff: Made from 100% Softspun® cotton, the OBD kids t-shirt range are made to withstand everything the kids can throw at them. Made in the UK, each t- shirt features twin needle seams for extra durability, perfect for the more adventurous little whippersnappers. And there’s no denying the kids love to set a challenge for the washing machine by leaving their clothes covered in food, mud, and grass stains, so it’s a good job every tee is machine washable at low temperatures and comes out looking as good as new.

Slogan central: Slogan tees are one of the biggest trends of 2018, so let their personality shine through with our outstanding selection of slogan tees for kids. Each t-shirt is available in a range of vibrant and trendy shades to suit everyone. Our tees are #goals, and your youngsters can choose between joining the football, gaming, mermaid or unicorn squad, or for frazzled parents of nocturnal nippers, the ‘up all night, sleep all day’ tee will attract sympathetic glances and knowing nods from other parents.

Great value: Whether they’re sporty and active or they just want to look cool and just chill, with prices starting from just £14.50, you can fill their wardrobe for this season with looks to suit whatever mood they’re in. With long lasting colours and a fabric that holds its shape well in a fashion fit, they’ll only need replacing when that next growth spurt hits.

Treat yourself: Once the kids are sorted, take a look at our great range of ladies’ t- shirts, vest tops, and hoodies and reward yourself with some new updates to your own wardrobe. With 10% off your first order, there’s no excuse not to indulge yourself a little for a change, and with a great selection of everyday wear or gym clothing to pick from, you’ll be spoilt for choice.OBD CLothing Kids Collection

Girl Power: OBD Clothing teams up with Leanne Brown with a new charity collection

 

When OBD Clothing met Real Housewives of Cheshire, Leanne Brown, and she told us her ideas for a clothing collection that would share an important message, we knew we were on the brink of doing something amazing.

At OBD Clothing we’ve teamed up with the business woman and humanitarian to create a fun yet feisty range of women’s t-shirts and hoodies featuring messages of positivity to empower women, all whilst fundraising for an international women’s charity at the same time. Phew!

The Leanne Brown Collection is the reality TV star’s first collaboration with us, and inspired by her love of fashion and her passion for her cause, Leanne hopes to build confidence in women throughout the UK and Europe through messages of encouragement, as well as donating 30% from each sale from the range to the African charity One Woman At A Time.

We love a good slogan at OBD, so when we saw the opportunity to create stand-out get noticed t-shirts and hoodies for women, we knew we’d found the perfect fit with Leanne. Plus, we get to help achieve her fundraising goals, which are looking set to continue to go from strength to strength.

FASHION CONSCIOUS SOCIAL CONSCIOUSNESS

During a recent trip to Africa, Leanne met women whose lives have been affected by Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), early marriage or poverty in Kenya and Nigeria. Inspired by their stories of survival and the efforts of the charity who transform the lives of these women through education, training and employment, Leanne returned to the UK determined to make a difference herself. That’s when she contacted us.

So, we set to work creating the range, helping Leanne to put all her efforts behind raising awareness for the charity One Woman At A Time. The slogan clothing range is already helping to raise vital funds for much needed resources and support that will help women in Africa to achieve financial independence to open up more options for their future.

Through online sales alone, the collection has so far raised over £500 towards the fundraising target since the launch of the empowerment clothing range in February 2018 at The Botanist in Alderley Edge, Manchester.

CHECK OUT THE LEANNE BROWN COLLECTION

From curve hugging tees to a slouchy fit, this collection features a range of casual t-shirts and oversized hoodies, perfect for practicing a bit of girl power and shaking that sass in comfort as well as style. Available in a range of colours, and flattering sizes from 8-28, the Leanne Brown Collection is designed for every body, and definitely fulfils ‘jeans and a nice top’ criteria if you’re heading for drinks with friends.

The collection is proving to be a huge success and also popular with soap stars and bloggers keen to show off the motivational designs on Instagram and Twitter, featuring intentions and inspirational slogans including ‘Anything is Possible’, ‘Be your Own Idol’ and ‘Encourage. Empower. Embrace’.

BUY FROM THE LEANNE BROWN COLLECTION NOW AND HELP TO CHANGE LIVES IN AFRICA

The Leanne Brown Collection can be found through the OBD Clothing website where 30% of each purchase is automatically donated to women in need throughout African countries. Look great and feel great with meaningful t-shirts and hoodies knowing that you’ve helped to change the lives of others, One Woman At A Time.

The Scouse Bird Collection Has Landed!

It's official! We have teamed up with Iconic Liverpool based blogger Scouse Bird Problems  and are bringing you all her wit and memes into a clothing line!
 
The Scouse Bird Collection, gives women from sizes 8 to 28 the chance to turn heads and raise a smile with some favourite scouse bird slogans including the fabulous “I’m every Scouse Bird, it’s all in me”.
 
The idea to add some classic SB one liners to a new OBD range, made perfect sense to both women who share a passion to make sassy clothing available to women of all sizes.
 
Steph Bannister, the woman behind Scouse Bird Problems said: “Much like the slogan on the ‘I’m every Scouse Bird’ t-shirt, I like to think that my blog and my sense of humour is relatable to Scouse girls of ALL shapes and sizes and not just one type of woman. That’s what I love about ODB and how inclusive they are; usually if you’re bigger than a 14 you tend to be forgotten about by the fashion world, particularly when it comes to gym wear and I’m not about that life. I think you should have you cake, eat it, and still be able to go the gym in fun clothing that actually fits the amount of sass in your ass. I’m so proud to be working together."
 
We are already working on building the range with plans for plenty more this side of Christmas. Check out the collection below.

The Curve Fashion Festival 2017 & Face of OBD Curves

The Curve Fashion Festival 2017

This years Curve Fashion Festival was held at the Liverpool Exhibition Centre on the 9th September and from start to finish it was a fab experience and we can’t to be part of it next year.

Below is a picture of our stand. We have to thank the Celtic Curves girls for doing a photoshoot in our tops so we could use the pictures on the stand! They all look so fab!

On the day we got to meet alot of lovely people and introduce ourselves to people who haven’t heard of  OBD. Our Adele Hello Its Me Jumper went down a storm and sold pretty quickly! If you have one and haven’t already tagged us in a picture then we would love to see you in yours!

On the day we got some great pictures with our slogan boards you can see some below and the rest can be see on our facebook page.  

We also got a visit from Sandra from Goggle box who got some pictures with some of our staff and competition winners. 

We received some great feedback on the day, with a lot of people asking about vest tops, we are looking into this and will hopefully be able to extend our vest range sizes in the near future. For those that don’t know even though are plus size range is t-shirts and a lot of people find t-shirts too hot to workout in, ours are designed to breathable and any sweat is wicked away before you notice is. They are made from 100% polyester and have tiny little holes in the material which is what makes them great for working out in. We really enjoyed this years fashion festival and we have been really busy since. From the catwalks to the prosecco on tap the day was one day that can’t be missed, bring on 2018!

Face of OBD Curves

As well as having a stand at this years Curve Fashion Festival we also held the final of Face of OBD Curves Competition. We have 3 of our finalists with the top likes on their entry, come along to the festival so we could meet them, give them a model makeover and find out why they should become the Face of OBD Curves. We have to be honest all the girls were so fab it wasn’t an easy decision. Here is our three finalists after we got them in our tops and give them a makeover.

The  day started with pizza and Prosecco for our lovely girls and then once each of them had their hair and makeup done we took pictures of them with our slogan boards, this was to help us see who was most confident and photogenic. Over the day we got to know the girls personally, this was another stage in helping us to decide who should be the face. In the afternoon we then got all the girls on stage and asked them why they think they should become the face of the brand. To us this is very important, we wanted someone who was just as passionate about our brand as us. All the girls gave great speeches which you can watch here. 

After much deliberation between quite a few of use we then decided on a winner which was Becca Turner! Check out the action shot of when we announced she won below. You will now see Becca all over our website looking fab in our gym clothes! We recently did a shoot with her and she worked so hard and we couldn’t be happier with her being the face of our brand.

We really enjoyed running this competition this year and getting to know some fab people and can’t wait to run the same competition next year.
