Believe in yourself
Believe in yourself

 Isolated Heroes Provide luxury collections which are hand made in our studio in Scotland. Launched in 2012 Isolated Heroes Focuses on creating Luxury fashion collections which are accessible to a younger audience and are not defined by gender, sizes or seasons.

We are firm believers that clothing can enhance your mood and make you feel your BEST. Isolated Heroes aims to empower wearers with our Body Positive outlook, we believe EVERYONE should look and feel good whatever their size! We grade all of our patterns from a size UK 4 up to size 24. We are hoping with your kickstarter backing we can develop on our plus size range providing more choices within the collection and a wider size range.

We design and make everything in our Studio in Scotland

We are extremely proud of all we have managed to achieve in the last three years of Business, from being a small start up to now being a living wage employer. We have created opportunity's for fashion and textile students to come and work alongside us and help develop our new collections. We hand sew every sequin, do all our own embroidery and up until now make ALL of our items that are available in our online store in house.

WHY DO WE NEED YOUR HELP?

We are looking for you our followers and customers to back our Kickstarter project and help our business grow! I started Isolated Heroes straight outta Uni as a wild idea that slowly gained a huge customer following and developed into a business. We received zero funding from the start and had no private investors. Isolated Heroes is well on its way to becoming a self sustaining business with a strong growing customer base and a high turnover.

Right now we are faced with the challenge of funding our business growth. We are currently stocked on a number of AHMAZZING High profile International online retailers ... Dolls Kill, Shop Jeen, Wild Honey and NYLON. Not only do we manage our own online store making every single retail order we also manufacture our wholesale orders in house. This means if one of our favourite stores place an order we can be sewing up to 200 extra items within a six week turn around. 

Now we are being approached by the big guns! The retailers we can only dream of working with on a regular basis .. Nasty Gal, ASOS and Topshop have all approached us to place orders in the last month. However the order sizes are far bigger than anything we can produce within our small studio.

We need you to help us raise £5000 for us to start outsourcing manufacture! 

With £5000 we can start working with these new stockists and trial some of our samples in Factory's within the UK. Its extremely important for us to use ethical UK based manufacturers. By outsourcing the production for our wholesale orders it means Isolated Heroes will be available in more retailers worldwide. It will also free up our time and let us design even more collections per year bringing you fresh new stock on the regular!

We know how much you guys love the Mermaid Sequin Tears dress! It is our most popular item in our online store and with our stockists! With its super relaxed oversized fit and embellished sequin overlay the dress easily moves between day wear and night wear and can be worn with jeans for a chilled out look or own its own with a pair of Killer Heels. 

We have created an exclusive RAINBOW sequin mermaid tears dress available only via Kickstarter in a limited run of 50 dresses. These will be available on our online store in December but at the price of £125. Receive yours a whole month before everyone else at the price of £50.

Risks and challenges

WHY KICKSTARTER
iSOLATED HEROES have always aimed to provide our customers with a digital design experience. Crowdfunding via Kickstarter seemed like the best way for us to keep our customers involved and up to date with our campaign.

RISK & CHALLENGES
We are confident that our product will be delivered in time, and the set time for production is organized. We will be providing a dedicated account manager and a follow up email to everyone who places orders for garments keeping you updated with production and time frames. For any sizing queries we have provided a size chart and please feel free to leave a Question under the FAQ section.

We are well prepared with our Kickstarter prizes and are confident in our production timescale aiming to have all items shipped by the 30th of November so you will have your items in time for Christmas.

Our screen print T-shirts have already been manufactured and we are well underway to making a large selection of stock of the limited edition Rainbow tears dresses and Sequin Tote Bags :)
