The next part of our series “Introducing Designers” is about Diamond Dress Design and its founder Jessica Twittmann.
You have practiced a lot. You feel ready. Your horse feels ready. Ready for the first horse show. But before you start off to this unique experience, you might wonder: What to wear in which class? You might have seen pictures on Facebook or in magazines of riders wearing fancy jackets and colourful vests. And you have found out that these cost a fortune. What to do? In this article, DQHA Professional Horsewoman Claudia Bingel and designers Sabrina Hoppert and Nadine Caballera as well as Jacqueline Hans of Hansride explain what to wear, when to wear it and how to save money.
This is part five of our series “Introducing Designers”. We have talked to Nadja Schreiber of the German brand Cherry Dream Showoutfits that is run by her and her Mom.
In this series, we introduce all European designers. While most of them offer spectacular, unique, sparkly master pieces, the business we will introduce in this article has chosen to take a different part: Hansride is a young brand that offers all sorts of shirts, custom-made, DIY and off the rack. We have talked to Jacky Hans about their new family business, what they offer and – she spilled the secret – what’s next to come.
Up next in our series “Introducing Designers” is a show clothing brand from Hungary. We talked to the team of Equus Caballus Sport about their family business.
We continue our series “Introducing Designers” in a – nearly – alphabetical order. Meet Sonja Lam from The Netherlands who runs Bright Star Western Show Boutique:
It is a question that people – especially horse-addicted mothers – ask on Facebook a lot: “Where do you get show clothing for your kids? Do get something custom made or are you a DIY queen?” We have gathered advice from designers and mothers and interviewed Nadine Aberle who has recently founded a store for children’s show clothing.
It is a problem many of us have encountered – The Showlife as well: messages from sketchy people on Facebook who want to sell their outfits or blankets. Quite often, these blankets and outfits are the cheap version of a custom made product. We have talked to Sabrina Hoppert and Nadine Caballera from MamaMia Showclothing about this topic.
Nowadays, there are many different designers who offer show clothing in Europe – no matter what, jacket or shirt, expensive or really, really expensive. Those who can afford it, can choose from many options. Those who can’t, however, have to search through many, many Facebook groups in order to find a pre-used outfit which the previous owner doesn’t like anymore or doesn’t fit in anymore. Since a few months, however, there is an easier option: Horse Show Stunners. Founder Isabell Perkins has told us everything about this new and special online shop which is like the European Version of Show Me Again.
