Behind every product is a little story... And the story behind our Wildcats Range is a bit of an exciting one at that! Up until now all of our designs at MontiiCo have been produced in house, but it has been a goal for us in 2020 to collaborate with local artists.
The story begins with a little idea...
I first spied Kasey Rainbow prints on some of my favourite clothing brands such as Little Party Dress and Jericho Road Clothing and I knew Kasey would be the perfect match for Montii! Her bright, fun and unique style was the perfect fit for Montii and I instantly knew we HAD to work with her.
(And before I go on, yes Rainbow is her real last name! And yes, when I read on her about me page she was open to having margaritas, I was even more excited.)
When Kasey said YES! I was thrilled! There may have been a little jumping up and down in the office! (Ok and maybe a little bit of squealing).
Working with Kasey was a breeze! We sent her our concept idea. Without hesitation, she worked her magic and nailed our idea straight away! For anyone who knows me, they’ll know getting ideas out of my own head into someone else's, can be tricky (sorry Kowen! haha!)
Before our eyes came together, our very special Wildcats Range! Which we knew you guys would absolutely LOVE!
Being local to us here, we invited Kasey along to our photoshoot day in Brisbane! Kasey’s daughter Darcey absolutely stole the show. At age four, Darcey is even following in her Mums footsteps, with her very own brand - Drawn by Darcy!
We also invited some of our favourite Instagram supporters (total influencers!) along for our shoot! We absolutely LOVE these ladies, and the support they give our brand is amazing!
Kellie from @my_shopping_dreams is a long time supporter of small business, lover of all things bright and a breast cancer warrior. I have connected with Kellie through Instagram and I was so stoked to meet her in real life (how good are the IG connections we make!!).
Along with our very own Ness and her twin sister Peta @traineemama! Seriously, how FUN would it be to have an identical twin - besties for life! #FunFact - Kirsty, Peta and I met in an online Mums group nearly SEVEN years ago and this was the first time we actually met Peta in person!!
AND the wonderful Katy @katypotaty . Katy is hilarious, loves a good craft beer and is a HUGE small biz supporter. Katy was full of confidence and gave us some much-needed posing coaching on the day! An absolute ball of positivity this lady!
If you aren’t following these ladies - seriously do yourself a favour and go and give them a follow and say hey!
Lunch and drinks [may] have been consumed after our shoot - hey we deserve it right?!
