I’m delighted to introduce the That’s Not My Age Edit. A small collection of exclusive items created in collaboration with some of my favourite independent designers. Most of the items have been created by the designer and myself, working together on one of their signature pieces. We all possess a similar mindset about slow fashion and the environment and buying clothes to last. Read more about the collection HERE

This pink sweatshirt, made in collaboration with Dandy Star, is emblazoned with the age-positive slogan 'Own It' - which refers to standing our ground rather than chasing youth. Owning ourselves, owning our space and owning our age. It has an oversized fit, raglan sleeves and an old-school athletic vibe. It's made from 85% organic cotton and 15% recycled polyester.
Made using sturdy vegetable tanned leather, in a petrol colour (a gorgeous dark blue/green shade), this Mimi Berry x TNMA Martha bag is the kind of stylish, everyday style that goes with everything. It's the perfect size to carry your purse or wallet, keys, phone, plus a small book or diary. It features a solid brass turn-lock and fittings.
Dimensions: H: 14cm / W: 22cm / D: 9cm / Strap: 131cm
I couldn't do a collection for That's Not My Age without including a one-and-done boiler-suit. This beauty is from Spry Workwear, and is handmade in a small, family-run factory in Great Yarmouth. It is made from a soft ecru cotton twill and features a defined adjustable waist, plenty of pockets and a zip closing, and fits like a dream!
Sizes: 6-14 . Price £175 with 20% off for TNMA readers making it £140. Use code TNMA20 at the checkout.
OK, I'm not massively into branding but one of the pieces had to have That's Not My Age on it! I worked with Dandy Star to create this not-so-basic tote back, which comes in a striking camouflage print and features a gold metallic That's Not My Age logo on one side. It's roomy enough for everything from laptops and gym kits to groceries. You know you want one...
Dimensions: W:49cm H:37cm. Strap length:70 cm
Introducing the elegant, pull-on-and-go Spargrove shirt I worked on with designer Sarah O'Keefe; a versatile top with puff sleeves, a V-neckline and a raw-edge collar. Made from 100% cotton, it is printed with a traditional hand-screen method (using the Dabu technique) in India. The shirt is made to order by a seamstress in Somerset, so please allow 10-14 days for delivery.
Sizes: 1-3 (S-L)
This scarf has been created by Laslett England for the TNMA Edit. It's called Diamond Sunset and features a serene palette of oranges and blues. It's made from 100% silk crepe de chine with hand-rolled edges. I love the retro pattern and the diamond shape falls beautifully making it easy to style. Width: 38cm. Length: 183cm
Price £165 with 15% off for TNMA readers which makes it £140.25. Use code TNMA15 at the checkout.
My second sweatshirt an age-positive quote, designed in collaboration with Dandy Star. '& Wiser' speaks for itself - though sometimes people need reminding of our years of experience and knowledge! This one is in a neutral grey colour, with a silver metallic slogan. Both sweatshirts are made from 85% organic cotton and 15% recycled polyester and manufactured in Fair Trade factories.
For the TNMA collection, Jo Gordon suggested the soft lambswool scarf with a zig-zag design and I chose my favourite shades of blue and green from this season's colour palette. The smaller size makes the scarf really handy for tucking into a jacket. Jo Gordon knitwear is manufactured in the UK, mostly in Scotland, using skilled craftspeople and local mills.
Size: 105cm x 14cm.
