One of the UK's ethical fashion journalist, Lucy Seigle, featured Nu Blvck in her 'Well Dressed' feature in the Guardian Online and Observer Magazine.
Fashions New Model
"Here’s a question for fast fashion lovers. How long do you intend to keep shopping this way, and when will you know when you have a full wardrobe? Nu Blvck co-founders Becca Flory and Andrew Vincent envisage a time when you’ll pre-order your clothes months ahead from a limited collection and have more of a connection with the maker and designer."
Nu Blvck made the cover of ion magazine in March 'Fashion Edit' with the Merchants House rooftop shoot of the gorgeous Georgia Gary wearing the Icon Revived collection designed by Hannah Louise Baxter.
WHAT THEY SAID
" ...change is afoot and one Scottish startup doing things a bit differently is Nu Blvck, a high-concept accessories brand based in Glasgow and making waves globally."
"Exciting business models and fantastic makers mean nothing though, unless the designs are up to scratch. It stands to reason that you wouldn’t be reading this article if the designers had missed the mark here and it’s true, the first two collaborators, Hannah Louise Baxter and Ruth Williams, have each created something quite special. The collections comprise a range of belts, bags, purses and scarves which represent a superb prelude to what could well be a new movement in the fashion world."
