Babe, lets talk sustainability!
At Isolated Heroes we believe that TRANSPARENCY is key to bringing a more sustainable approach to garment production.
We think sustainable fashion shouldn't have to mean boring styles, huge prices and dull fabric choices! We all need to make little changes to work towards a more sustainable industry.
We believe looking and feeling like a Sass Queen shouldn’t have to harm the planet 🌍
At Isolated Heroes we are committed to keeping our customers updated on the actions we are taking as a brand as we work towards a circular fashion system. We already offer our customers the opportunity to swap their Isolated Heroes garments with other members of the Sequin Squad and hope to introduce garment rental to our services soon.
💖 Isolated Heroes garments are manufactured lovingly in the UK by our fabulous in house production team at our Dundee HQ and we also work with the team at Sap Kreations in Wishaw on some of our pieces. We work in small batches so as not to have large stock quantities and minimise our fabric waste.
💖 We use a zero waste approach to pattern cutting and garment production. Any scrap fabric is transformed into our fabulous accessories range or reworked items such as denim jackets, sequin sleeve sweaters and motif T’s.
The Design Process
💖 We design our collections ensuring our pieces have longevity in your wardrobe & we love seeing all the different ways you style your Isolated Heroes garments! Our signature styles are designed and manufactured with attention paid to fabric, fit and finish to give your pieces a long lifespan.
💖 We want to bring VALUE back to garments and showcase the skill of people working in this industry! When you shop with Isolated
Heroes you are supporting a large network of freelancers and women working in the Scottish fashion industry. We showcase the entire design process from design, sampling to finished product via social channels to show the time involved and the process of how long it takes to manufacture your perfect item.
💖 Isolated Heroes design stand out statement pieces for your wardrobe that are made to last.
We believe #slowfashion is the way forward and design garments that can be treasured forever and handed down through generations.
💖 Each collection will take design cues from a number of different inspirations which we translate into our signature pieces, like our iconic t shirt and wrap dresses or completely new styles like our A/W '23 Cher co-ord!
Who makes your clothes?
Isolated Heroes are proud to support UK manufacturing! Isolated Heroes began making every item by hand to order in our Dundee HQ by our fabulous production team. Occasionally we will create certain items in small batches, particularly for our retail events and pop up shops, and have recently introduced working with Juliet and her team at Sap Kreations for a portion of our manufacture. We believe in ethical manufacturing and adding the value back into the garment production process! Every single item is lovingly produced by one of our talented team of fashion technologists, seamstresses and production assistants.
Our in-house production queens make each item to order which means we can tweak each garment and take custom requests before making your order. Need a little length added or want a change to the neckline? No problem honeyz! Just drop a note on your order at checkout. Looking for something completely unique? Choose to go full custom!
We are lucky to have a dedicated accessories designer who works with our selvedge end and waste fabrics to create a collection of #Zerowaste products including mesh socks, sweater motifs and clutch bags. These are affordable entry level products which provide an accessible insight into circular fashion for our audience.
Where are your fabrics from?
At Isolated Heroes the majority of our sequin fabrics come from deadstock fabric suppliers which means each collection is super limited edition and rare! We know sequins aren’t the most sustainable material however by using deadstock textiles, we are essentially saving old fabrics from waste.
Are you making biodegradable sequin fabrics? Get in touch! We'd love to hear about it.
Our digital print items use OEKO-Tex certified environmentally-friendly dyes on organic bases. We use Pigment dyes rather than the sublimation method which means we use only 1 litre of water per meter
compared to the industry average of 90 litres of water per meter printed!
How you can get involved
At Isolated Heroes we are working towards a circular initiative of reuse, repair and recycle. We host frequent Swap Shops for our sequin squad in our Dundee HQ and via our Instagram so that our fabulous customers can swap their Isolated Heroes garments for preloved items from other sequin squad members! Giving our garments a new lease of life and promoting circular fashion.
We frequently share styling ideas, tips to keep your sequins shining their best and ways to repair and recycle your garments on our Instagram, so don’t forget to follow us for the latest updates. Our customers are also rewarded with Sequin Squad points to put towards further purchases on every order!
