Leading the red revolution

red head threads

A TAMWORTH mum is launching a unique and inspirational range of children’s clothing after struggling to find outfits which suited and celebrated her daughter’s rare look and unique spirit – and is looking for models to show off her new clothing range.

With only 2% of the world’s population born with red hair, Jennie Marshall, of Tamworth, wants her daughter to feel empowered by her difference and to celebrate the unique look and spirit that being a redhead brings.

So, when her daughter was born with a full head of gorgeous red hair, she was determined to make sure she would always be proud of her unique look and set about instilling a sense of confidence which could combat any negativity to difference.

That empowering attitude has now inspired a new business – Redhead Threads – which celebrates the MC1R gene which makes all redheads so unique and special.

Using colours that compliment rather than clash with red hair the mother of one, who illustrates her own designs for each of the outfits, is keen to create a range which helps empower children to believe in and be proud of what makes them stand out and be different.

“As a red head you are born to stand out,” says Jennie, who has been praised by other mums for her inspirational messages. “I have always brought my daughter up to be proud of who she is. Her hair makes her unique and special as there are very few people in the world that share that specific gene. So, I always wanted to give her the skills and knowledge to deal with any negativity that may arise. Through Redhead Threads we now want to share that empowering message further changing stereotypes and negativity to difference.”

Choosing a tailored palette of colours for her range Jennie compliments skin tone, eye colour and of course their glorious red hair to show it off to its best.

“I also focus on delivering empowering messages about being different and how great that is! So, this range not only provides clothes that finally compliment all children’s colourings but celebrates their unique FULL ON spirit too!” says Jennie.

Jennie is now looking for models to take part in her latest photoshoot on Sunday 12th November to unveil her new clothing range. With a new Redhead Threads t-shirt, a copy of their own photo from the day and a goodie bag for the winning entrant Jennie is keen to find a local red head boy aged between 5 and 10 years with a mass of red hair and bags of personality to model her new range.

“Blue eyes and red hair are the rarest making up only 1% of the population but we are just looking for a youngster who is keen to celebrate their unique look and who can help us rock the red head gene,” said Jennie, who is also now creating adults t-shirts in the range following numerous requests from parents keen to support their little red heads.

Please send a photo with your name and contact details to [email protected] by 1st November. Winning entrants will be notified by 3rd November. The photoshoot is at The Studio, Tolsons Mill Business Park, Fazeley, Tamworth. Entrants must be available for the photoshoot on 12th November at 10am for approximately 2 hours.
