Months ago, I launched my own little brand of iron-on patches called Pew Pew Patches. It was inspired by the whole rave over denim, that would continue for awhile, and the idea of vintage denim accessories.
The patches have been lots of fun to design and the opportunities we’ve had have been beyond my expectations! Our stockists have been very supportive and our latest launch in Korea has left me feeling absolutely grateful :’)
Some people have been asking me how to style the patches. If you look up #pewpewpatches on Instagram, you’d find ways other patchers have done so! Some on shoes, some on jackets while mine has been on my denim overalls and tote bags.
With summer coming, I thought it’d be great to show you some ideas on how to patch some denim dresses. These can be purchased off ZALORA, an online shopping site which delivers to almost every part of Asia.
Here, I’ve used the patches at the corners of the dresses, where it is less empty and more unusual. I’ve also used them in groups of patches to show a little story or interaction among the characters.
If denim dresses aren’t your thing, I like the idea of a boyfriend shirt dress. It’s big and billowy, making it perfect for summer. Here, I’ve patched on the Candy hearts collection and arranged them in a regular pattern with a slight tilt to make them look more dynamic on the dress.
So, how else would you patch the patches? You can purchase them at pewpewpatches.com while the dresses are from ZALORA Hong Kong!
