What the Children Wore // Rockets and Rainbows
Busby: “What is Pride, Mummy?”
Me: “It’s a big party to celebrate love.”
Pier Street (next to Humber Street) in Hull has recently been given a rather rainbow-tastic makeover in celebration of hosting UK Pride this year, so where better to photograph these colourful Rockets and Rainbows t-shirts?!
Charlotte, Jade and Aimee started Rockets and Rainbows in February 2017 because they were fed up with spending a fortune on children’s clothing and being restricted on designs. (The creative ladies have five children between them!) Charlotte loved the idea of being able to design her own t-shirts, and Jade had recently made her son a couple of pairs of leggings, so they saw a gap in the market, especially locally, for handmade clothing. They brought Aimee on board as their photographer, and then eventually their skirt designer/creator. Becky has just joined the team as their advertiser – and is currently working on her own line of products for Rockets and Rainbows, so they’re quite the dynamic team of awesomely creative mothers!
Busby and H-Bear were each sent a named t-shirt to share over on our Instagram feed, but I enjoyed this shoot so much that I thought I’d turn it into one of our What the Children Wore posts!
I love a personalised tee; these are designed and printed by the R&R team onto white cotton t-shirts. Don’t they look awesome? Busby’s rainbow paint splatter is slightly glittery and she ADORES it!
Now, white t-shirts plus small, messy children usually send alarm bells ringing, but the Rockets and Rainbows t-shirts wash really well (and the white means that any really bad stains can be bleached out! Huzzah!).
H-Bear wears age 2-3 years and Busby wears age 5-6 years. Both fit well with plenty of room to grow.
These t-shirts make the best playwear, the children love the personalised aspect (and the glitter!), AND they are so reasonably priced (prices start from £7)! You can buy your own personalised paint splattered t-shirts (plus a plethora of other fun childrenswear) from the Rockets and Rainbows Facebook page.
