Still need a Halloween costume? Look no further, Animalesque is the perfect solution to your costume crisis. But I'll let you in on a little secret, Animalesque isn't just any costume brand, it will be a costume you hold on to for a lifetime!
'Animalesque is a unique and independent costume brand for all those wild little creatures who love to dress up! But also for grown-up kids with an eye for something special…
Founded by artist and textile designer, Sara Lowes, Animalesque inspires creative play and helps to bring narrative to life through costume and props, capturing a sense of wonder and reconnecting children with their innate gift, and fundamental need, to imagine.
Animalesque combines Sara’s expertise in textile design - illustration, screen-print and embroidery - with her experience as a children’s storyteller, to produce playful costumes and accessories, rich with colour, texture and character.
Using a diverse range of fabrics, often recycled or collected on various travels, Sara lovingly produces her collectable creations in her London studio.'
I met Sarah at the first ever Dot to Dot awhile back and fell in love with her creations. They are unique, beautiful and timeless. I plan on getting Edith a mask now as she is older and will appreciate it a bit more or I'll wear it:)
