Alex Pett, Founder of The Glass Pineapple
“We want to make it easy to buy from all the amazing designers we’ve found over the years. Plus, we believe that there’s a place in fashion for promoting a kinder and more collaborative approach that embraces diversity, inclusivity and openness without any compromise on aesthetics and style. You don’t have to opt for a crazy expensive label - or be a certain age, skin colour or size - to wear innovative pieces and look and feel amazing."
About The Glass Pineapple
The Glass Pineapple began three years ago as a way to support emerging designers and labels through content and coverage via Instagram and blogging. By attending fashion weeks and shows and exploring communities, collaborations and studios, they found a wealth of untapped fashion talent where the only barrier was a retailer who would invest up front in these unknown labels. So, they decided to open the kind of online store we felt was missing from the market - to make it easier to buy these designers and to focus on more positive messaging to help drive fashion back towards the kinder, more experimental, more self-expressive and inclusive place from which it came.
