Hi Guys! My name is Naomi Bolt and I’m here today to tell you about my start-up business HEAVENA BY NAOMI BOLT! I have chosen to go for funding as I will truly benefit from these pledges and Natwest bank will match our raised funding with a £500 pledge! How amazing is that?! Currently ran solely by myself, I am a full time designer with 4 years experience who wants to give back! This brand is for trendy women like me who want to make there shopping experience more unique and create something they will love rather then settle for. This is for women who want to reduce their environmental foot print by choosing sustainable fashion and not choosing mass production. This is for women who find it hard to find that perfect fit.
Heavena by Naomi Bolt is a forward-thinking clothing brand where women of all ages, sizes and cultures can design their dream bespoke outfits online and we bring their vision to life. They can do this by sending a photo inspiration or a hand drawn design they have drawn with the specifics they want for the designs. They will then receive final design options with fabric swatches and price.
All 'Design your own' custom made garments are made to measure. I aim to bring women affordable fashion, that they will love and keep forever! As society has started to open its eyes to the detrimental effects fast fashion is having on the planet, my start up will be encouraging women to design high quality clothes they will keep for a very long time because they designed them and the clothes fit perfectly. I also offer pieces from my own collection to purchase which can be made in any sizes from my size chart. As all my garments are made to order in the UK (currently at my home and one day in the brands own studio!) this will keep my production process monitored and sustainable. I also recycle or re-use scraps left from orders. My dream is to help save the planet through something I’m passionate about and specialize in.
Our website is currently under construction but please click the link below to our Instagram page to see a few more client images and feedback.
As the company grows, I want to give back by giving a small percentage to charity that specialize in finding a cure for Lupus, a chronic condition I suffer from. Lupus is a autoimmune disease that occurs when your body's immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. Inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems — including your joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs. Many people aren't diagnosed for at least 6 years as a lot of doctors still don't know about the disease let alone how to cure it. This needs to change! I also want to give to charities that are doing everything they can to save the plant from extinction.
