Guest blog from Kath at Power of Greyskull
I created of The Power of Greyskull just over two years ago. Here at TPOG we design and makes all our sportswear in house in our studio in Penarth, Cardiff. Our fabrics are woven in Italy and printed in Keighley in Yorkshire.
My background is a degree in fashion design, several years of working as a designer for the high street, a redundancy, love for yoga, exercise classes and roller derby and a passion to be able to provide any person of shape or size with excellent fitting sportswear.
We make all of our stock designs in standard sizes but we also offer a made to measure service where we can make all our items to each individual’s needs. There are a lot of people out there who do not fit conventional size guides and we love that we can help everyone wear something that fits them perfectly.
All our fabric is 83% polyester 17% spandex and is breathable and can be washed up to 40 degrees.
My print inspiration comes from anything and everything. Cats, Unicorns, Dinosaurs, the constellations, meadows, mountains. The list is limitless. We ask our clients what they would like to have and we make those desires a reality.
Our passion at TPOG is to make everyone feel special in their clothing and offer something that isn’t readily available on the high street.
We currently offer leggings, capris, running shorts, cycles, crop tops and vests but we will also shortly be offering weight lifting outfits, dance leotards, padded cycling shorts and rash vests.
Our small company has grown rapidly over the last few years and we are very excited to be part of Cardiff Fashion Week.
