Get To Know: SproutFit

Hi Whitney!

Tell us about your brand and your business model.

Thoughtfully designed with growth spurts in mind, SproutFit is an adjustable childrenswear brand proudly made in America with sustainable fabrics.


What drove you to start your own label? And what have you enjoyed the most so far?

As a new mom, I was frustrated with how often I was replacing clothes my son outgrew or never got to wear due to ill fit. I successfully launched via Kickstarter in Spring 2017, and my favorite part of the whole process has been the community connection and feedback from our mama tribe. It’s truly rewarding to be designing sustainable products in both design and material that are ALSO helping parents save time, money and hassle!


What are one or two big goals you’re focusing on in the next 6 months?

I’ve been improving the original collection since September 2017, and designing NEW items that will launch beginning of 2018, so I’m laser focused on executing a non-crowdfunded launch and production with a new factory. Wish me luck!

Get to Know: Hokum

Hokum is a luxury label full of colour and whimsy with a strong narrative to each collection. We have an omni channel approach, selling online, in store, and to wholesale accounts. It sounds like a traditional approach, but in many ways we are not. My work desk is set up at the back of the shop allowing customers to see the work that goes on behind the scenes.
