{March 19, 2009}   Maternity Clothing – We Know What We Want!

We are sure that Holly Willoughby is a really nice person. Its hard not to appreciate her gentle and unthreatening presenting style on mainstream UK TV shows Dancing on Ice and The Xtra Factor. A measure of her success is that her most controversial moment came when she once wore a slightly revealing dress. Good luck to her – here’s Holly in action:

But surely her recently launched line of Maternity Clothing is one of the most unnecessary celebrity fashion lines in history.

Sorry Holly, maybe i am doubting your capacity to organise your life, but i just can’t see how you managed to fit the time to design and develop a range of maternity clothing into your busy schedule.

We realise that we have banged on about this topic before, but this has once again tipped us close to the edge. Why is it these days that, not content with appearing on our TV screens, newspaper column inches and magazine racks at every avaliable opportunity, celebs (or their management teams and desperate retailers more likely) feel the need to impose their fashion sensibilities upon us?.

The message to all these parties should be clear – please stop doing this! – We are perfectly capable of locating and deciding for ourselves what we want to wear. We are not brain dead drones who will instantly want to purchase a line of clothing just because a celebrity has stuck their signature on the label. Please stop paying these unqualified celebrities fortunes (probably) and use the budget to develop innovative and interesting clothing ranges.

Here’s some non-celebrity maternity fashion that rocks – in our opinion obviously!

Peacocks maternity clothes are pretty great – fun designs, stylish, practical and no celebs in site – exactly what we want from maternity clothing, their maternity jeans in particular are great!.

A bit more high-end than we would usually recommend, but some of 9 London’s maternity wear is stunningly designed.

Pretty Pregnant have an appealing mid-range priced line of maternity clothes.

Formes have been a major player for a number of years – like most things French, they have style in abundance.

Anyway, that’s just a few suggestions of ours – we hope you agree with some of them. Don’t listen to the celebritites!
