Women in Power / Why Keep Real is for Everyone

If there’s a documentary I couldn’t recommend enough, it would be ‘Miss Representation‘ on Netflix. Exposing how mainstream media and culture contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. Although I’m in the UK, sexism and under-representation of females in positions of influence or power exists. It has always […]

Trusted Clothes and Keep Real!

The wonderful Canadian non-profit Trusted Clothes are documenting my brand Keep Real’s journey of sustainability and inspiring wellness. So sweet! Please go ahead and check it out. It’s no good promoting mental well-being as a business, if the business doesn’t have the foundations of trying to be the best version of itself either. So we […]

Keep Real: behind the scenes

Well, a lot has been going down lately with Keep Real. It’s so so SOOOO exciting, yet I just never blog about it. A lot has happened and is happening, so it’s a real big mush ball of designing, networking, creating and thinking. Definitely a lot of thinking!! I held the first focus group for Keep Real […]

Mental Health is NOT a Fashion Statement

Hello my lovely lil’ cherubs! How has your day been? I’ve been doing a bit of research recently concerning mental health, and what really got me thinking- is how fashion influences people. We wear pieces that speak to us, they are part of our identity, and make us feel real good. I see up and […]

So it’s official, kimmykeepreal.com! ❤ I’ve been designing away and getting down and dotty (heh) with my artwork. Really focusing on key pieces to bring to the collection, from t-shirts and crop tops to notebooks and accessories. At this stage, its all about the grafting and working on finding the right materials and fit for […]

The Adventure Starts Here!

Tomorrow marks a crucial day for my dreams with Keep Real. This hobbit will be rolling in business plans, meetings and designs before the eventual stroll up to Mordor to conquer all (defeating evil and opening a really cool Store is my aim). I’m meeting with a Business Advisor to talk business (ahem, clearly) tomorrow and […]
