Ríon Hannora (she/her) – Owner of Ríon Hannora

'As a proud bi-sexual woman, I am delighted to have my boutique featured during Pride Month. My boutique consists of ethical, empowering and non-binary corsets which I design and create in my home in Ireland. Each corset is made from either bio-degradable or repurposed fabrics. I always try to portray gender fluidity throughout the imagery used on my site and I've made multiple commissioned corsets for all genders.'

Oluwatobi (she/her) – Owner of Beadaddictionxx

'I am 21 years old and I hand-make beaded chokers inspired by LGBTQ+ flags. The jewellery pieces I make are inspired by my Nigerian heritage and, as such, they are all made using a beading technique that is native to Eastern Nigeria, once used to make jewellery and crowns for royalty. I hope to not only make people feel royal with my chokers, but to boost their confidence and empower them.'

Nicki (she/her) – Founder of NIC NAC THRIFTY STACK

'I am a recording artist first and foremost, making alternative hip-hop. I also identify as a lesbian woman. Fashion has always been one of my interests, which led me to get into reselling vintage clothes. I wanted to create my brand for people who love designer clothes but aren’t able to afford the RRP.'
