Behind The Brand

An independent, gender-fluid brand, with a northern soul based in Manchester, UK ,run by one woman, me Sammy.

Heavily influenced and inspired by  fashions great alternative pioneers Vivienne Westwood and Pam Hogg  and 'rock 'n' roll culture from American and British, Glam Rock, Grunge, Modern Romantics to Punks. Think Keith Richards to Stevie Nicks, Marc Bolan to Siouxsie Sous. Eccentricity, flamboyancy, individuality is at the core of our heart and soul. 

We are the wild ones, the Sinners and Saints, the good and the naughty. I champion the non-conformists, the rebels with a cause, the free spirits and wandering souls who have found their place in this chaotic and beautiful world, gracing stages, festivals, raves and sweaty dance music halls.

My shop is based on the 2nd floor in the legendary Afflecks, Northern Quarter. I design and stitch all pieces by hand in house, offering bespoke and customised pieces, plus a small collection of vintage.

 It is my mission  to be committed to ethical  practices and keep my brands carbon footprint as low as possible. I source quality materials within the UK, having built strong relationships with local businesses. 

I'm the biggest advocate and champion of SLOW-FASHION, each piece is created with love and passion, that ultimately I hope transfers to my customers when they wear TS&S.
