0021 Susie Style Bubble loves our ruffles!!

Style Bubble is the bible of fashion blogs, particularly for all things new and interesting, so imagine how proud we were when we came home last Thursday night to see a gorgeous piece about our Little Seres on there....

Well worth a read, Susie describes our collection succinctly and evocatively;

"an easy-to-fall-for first collection that just needs a neat little e-store and some choice stockists for Borne to really be born."

More on stockists to come soon....

0016 The face of Borne's "Little Seres"

When we were organising the photoshoot for our lookbook the key part was finding the right face to represent Borne, the search for our "Borne girl" became an obsession!

The only asset we were looking for was some long blonde hair to throw around...

However when we met Kat we immediately knew that we had found our girl and we are so happy that she could be the face of our first collection!

Some of you may have seen this image before but this for us encompasses everything about our "Little Seres", feminine but with a masculine influence, smart but comfortable, simple but intricately detailed...

Flicking through some of the shots of the shows from New York and London we were delighted to see that Kat has had a busy couple of weeks!! Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, Richard Nicoll and Topshop Unique amongst others.... Go Kat!!

The other face of the collection will be our lookbook and we got a beautiful surprise this week when the first sample dropped through the letterbox hot off the press!

We also have an electronic version that we would love to share with you, so if you would like a copy then please send us your email address and we will make sure you are on the mailing list to receive it - please send all requests to
