Founder/Designer

OTTI

Jan 2016
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Freelance
  • OTTI is designed by myself and manufactured in London, England, using local industries and reducing carbon footprint wherever possible. With my background in fashion, and understanding that the throwaway culture of this industry needs to be addressed, I believe in buying less and sourcing wisely. I graduated in Fashion Design at the University of Brighton then moved to London to pursue a career in fashion. After assisting in the industry for some time, I wanted to expand my horizons and started working as a nanny. Running around with pre-schoolers allowed me to see through the eyes of both children and parents, inspiring me to design children’s clothes that are fun, minimal and comfortable. I worked closely with denim in my graduate collection so was naturally drawn to this timeless durable fabric. After nannying for a few years I spotted the lack of simple, stylish denim for children, seeing only fussy mini versions of adult clothes, or overly gendered designs with generic motifs. This is when my ideas for OTTI began to develop. My unique and playful designs and on-trend styling let children stay young for longer. OTTI offers fun, stylish, age appropriate clothing for 2 to 6 year olds - all made from 8oz denim, a fabric that is strong, robust and always in fashion. Out with belts, buckles, rivets and fussy detailing, and in with OTTI’s stripped back relaxed silhouettes and freedom to move and grow. Each OTTI piece has been carefully considered to be worn in multiple ways, layered with other items, and worn by girls and boys. OTTI garments can be worn together to create a complete outfit, or one well chosen piece can simply transform a wardrobe. Even the name of the brand was inspired by the kids. It turns out that pronouncing ‘Lotte’ is hard when you’re only two. So I am fondly called ‘Otti’ by some of my tiny friends.
