Stars of Tomorrow

Each season, we present the coveted Rising Star Award to Bubble's best debuting launch brand - and, for our latest round of applicants, the wait is over. We've chosen 11 finalists, who will present their collections to the judging panel at July's show. 

As ever, we were inundated with first-class entries - and the Rising Star shortlist is as diverse as Bubble's Spring/Summer 2015 lineup.

Sophisticated girlswear brand, Miss L Ray, has earned itself a place in the final, alongside fairy tale-inspired label Tails and Tales

They will be joined by stylish childrenswear brand, Prettybluefox, and London-based Tiny She, whose long, flowing skirts are inspired by the island of Ibiza. 

Spanish brand, Plumeti Rain, will present its organic, hand-embroidered clothing to the judges, while Luluzulu is set to unveil a range of cotton-rich baby tights and fun hat-masks. 

Specialising in fuss-free, vintage-feel boysewear, ABC123me has secured a place in the final. Star51, which takes inspiration from the elegant girlswear of the 1950s, has also been shortlisted. 


Pupe & Cavalieri will compete alongside them, presenting a collection of pretty rompers, dresses and christening ensembles. Darlo, which supports Indian charity, Project Crayons, through the sale of its cotton vests, leggings and baby-grows, is also in contention for the award. 

Completing the line-up, Pixie Toes will unveil a collection of handmade leather sandals in on-trend colours and prints. 

A panel of industry experts - including childrenswear retailers and magazine editors - will judge the competition, announcing their verdict at 17.00 on Sunday 13. 

Like former Rising Stars Wolf and Rita and RaspberryPlum, the winner is set to receive a free stand at Bubble's next edition.
