Charlotte Designer Spotlight: Wiggy Kit
The first employee at Capitol now has her own line
It's always exciting when a store gets an up-and-coming designer to give life to racks of established names. It's even cooler when that designer has Charlotte ties. Poole Shop just picked up British brand Wiggy Kit for the season. If that name is familiar, it's because Wiggy Hindmarch, the designer behind the brand, was Laura Vinroot Poole's first employee at Capitol. Years later, she is back in the building with her line of summer shift dresses that retail between $200 and $300. Pictured here is her best seller.
"The collection all began with the Tux Trapeze dress," Hindmarch says. "It is my best selling dress and with the addition of the three-quarter-length blouson sleeve, it is a dress that anyone can wear. It is often the case that women are desperate for a summer dress that does not leave them feeling over exposed whilst still remaining cool, breezy and summery and this dress does it all."
