Online retail giant and fashion brand, Want That Trend, was created by fashion lover and mother, Victoria Molyneux. When Victoria became a new mum, she noticed that there weren’t many clothes available that hid the body changes and insecurities that come after pregnancy. Realising that other women would also be in a similar position, she decided to take a new direction and combine her love of fashion with her knowledge of social media advertising, to create an online fashion business. Victoria harnessed the potential of using social media as a marketing platform, and combined it with the rise of the ‘selfie’ to photograph her garments. This has created an online award-winning business that has achieved a Facebook community of over 1.4 million fans and is a now an online fashion destination for women across the UK and beyond.
Katie Piper comments: ‘Being able to express myself through fashion has always been very important to me, so I couldn’t be more excited to launch my own collection with Victoria and the team at Want That Trend.Com. We all have body hang-ups, particularly as our bodies change after motherhood, but with the variety of styles within my collection I hope that every woman is able to find that perfect dress to make her feel like a million dollars!’
Victoria Molyneux, Founder of Want That Trend.com, comments: ‘We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Katie for her debut clothing collection, and are so proud to support her work through The Katie Piper Foundation. As a company, we’ve grown quickly in the past 12-months, particularly with the help of our 1.4million social media followers! When we were looking at a possible celebrity partnership, Katie was the only and obvious choice for us – our customers love her and so do we! As a busy mother like myself, Katie and I wanted to work together to provide a collection that would hopefully inspire and give confidence to women of all shapes & sizes. I think we have succeeded in that goal!’
