I am always looking at new exciting ways to develop the brand and to involve my customers as much as i can.
One of my greatest desires of change is to include you, to make you feel safe in trust in my vision and journey. I hope to to make these changes by involving you more on my mission. To make you feel more comfortable and at ease whilst you shop here.
A positive message to the world will be injected throughout Pretty Pink Princess in which i will radiate love, wisdom and positivity.
HOW I STARTED
When i first started the brand 7 years ago it was because i could not find Brazilian style swimwear in the UK. Even when i ordered over seas it was very limited.
I am also petite size UK6 and 5'2 with an enhanced sized c cup bust.
My aim was to feel more womanly and sexy when i went away, when i was younger i used to sew in more padding into my bikini tops to feel more confident.
This lead me to design swimwear they created more curves on women and to also cater for an enhanced bust too.
As this is my personal journey from being a teenager and growing up, this is the space i started to design from.
You will find most of my designs are micro Brazilian style this is because it is where my heart is at and what i personally enjoy designing. I do some swimsuit styles and high waist but mainly Brazilian style.
I cater for a large bust also up to an E cup and size UK16. However, as my style are Brazilian they are much smaller cuts and they do show more skin.
it is important that this is expressed to my customers so they understand the background of me and my designs without judgment.
As a small brand and doing o=most of the work alone, it is important that my boundaries are set in terms of how much i can cater for in terms of styles of swimwear.
This is simply because as a i'm also a mindfulness meditation coach i respect my mental and physical health knowing that i can not please everyone nor will my brand ever be perfect. The main thing i can do is provide the best possible service and designs i can for those who love my personal styles and designs.
So thank you for supporting me.
UNIVERSUS | GENDER NEUTRAL
I decided to kick start off 2020 by making a huge change to the brand.
This came about as I felt as though this change is and always will be very close to my heart.
The mission was to create a gender neutral brand concept. A comfortable and accepting platform in fashion and beauty. I decided it was time to involve anyone and everyone on my journey.
"At one point I doubted UNIVERSUS. Then I remembered something a good friend once wrote...
Only dead fish go with the flow.
I then realised that this isn't just my vision. It is so many other people's vision too. One that I can help come to fruition. So in that moment, I knew I had to do it".
UNIVERSUS didn't just happen over night. A lot of hard work, research, creativity, highs and lows brought this beautiful concept to life.
Dating back historically from the Native American tribal groups, gender was also neutral. They called it 'Two Spirit'.
They showed respect, empathy and attention to the web of living. Therefore, everyone in those sacred and wise tribes were accepted for who they were and who they wanted to be, inside and out.
We now plan to bring back that ancient wisdom that was once so profound. Through the living language of creation in modern day society.
WELLNESS & MINDSET
I started the brand in my mid 20's and it grew big and fast. It became overwhelming and i had time out due to my personal life circumstances.
I had suffered with mental health issues that needed to be addressed.
I needed to heal and embrace my spiritual gifts i have had my whole life.
So i decided to turn my life around and authentically heal and step into who i really am with no fear of what people thought of me.
I am now back and determined to inject as much of my mental health support and inner beauty wisdom into the brand as i possibly can in order for you to feel beautiful in your mind as well as your body in my designs.
I invite you to join me as a unique individual on this journey we call life. No matter who you are, what you do or where you are from, because together we are stronger.
My purpose is to introduce more culture, mindfulness, history and fine emotional creativity into collections, visions and events.
I aim to share a brave and positive message to the world. A pledge to my customers that with every purchase they are also contributing to this diverse change.
I will transmit love and courage to those who decide to walk this path with me.
To feel joy with no judgement is my greatest intent.
