Can I be honest with you? I never purchased anything from Sticky-Fudge before.
I always had a perception of the brand…
I assumed it was one of “those” expensive international brands that I would never be able to afford.
I never bothered to visit their website or read up about them until I received an email from their marketing team.
That one email took me directly to their website which made me realize that it was, in fact, a local brand and… a lot of their clothing was priced in the range I would normally spend for my kids.
The Sticky-Fudge journey began 7 years ago at an Organic and Natural produce market in the beautiful town of Stellenbosch South Africa. No one could have imaged the response the brand received and all involved quickly realised that the dream of creating a globally recognised children’s wear brand out of Cape Town was rapidly within reach.
Today Sticky-Fudge is sold in nearly 40 different countries around the globe including the world-renowned fashion capitals of New York, London, Milan and Hong Kong.
Sticky-Fudge goods are sold mainly at independent exclusive boutiques around the world but with an expanding online presence Sticky-Fudge is now available online in Spain and plans to roll out more online stores in the rest of Europe in 2016. Sticky-Fudge has also embarked on launching multiple South African Sticky-Fudge Franchises this year with plans to roll out similar franchise opportunities across Europe in the near future.
They have also appeared in the international media many times with features in magazines such as Kids Wear & Elle and have also appeared on WGSN as one of the top 5 children’s brands exhibited at Bubble London in 2014.
The Sticky-Fudge collections take you to a place of childhood innocence and a magical world of possibility. They place a large emphasis on creating clothing that is timeless yet displays a slight vintage flair- the result being clothing that is trusted, trendy and one of a kind. Frinette also prides her designs on their 100% cotton composition and ability to allow free movement and comfort without compromising the bold, trendy style of the designs. “At Sticky-Fudge we are able to take the art of children’s fashion to a space of expansive imagination, allowing the individual spark within each child to be reflected in how the clothing is worn” says the head designer.
Every collection has been crafted in such a way that it blends easily with future stories and creations, each collection complimenting the next. According to the close knit design team the collections are getting “better, more diverse, and more refined season after season. This season the collection is bolder, brighter and bigger than before! “
Sticky-Fudge is designed, created and managed from Sunny South Africa and being an authentic South African brand this is something they pride themselves on. They support the communities in which they operate by providing employment to those who need it most. The bulk of their manufacturing is done through local township based businesses while all their knitwear is handmade by a talented group of ladies at a retirement village based in Cape Town. Even though they are expanding into a global brand at a rapid rate they are adamant to stay true to their heritage and make sure they continue to support those who have helped them achieve success.
Sticky-Fudge spoilt Kitana and Kiaan with a bag full of gorgeous clothing. The quality is amazing! The fabrics, prints and trim details are carefully selected to complement the overall look and feel of the garment, at the same time being functional and practical. They pride ourselves in using natural fabrics, ensuring a softer more comfortable garment.
