11 Aug Get to Know the Quirkiest Local Accessory Brand, Puff Puff Poms!
SLTV: What inspires you for each piece?
KG: My inspiration really comes from everywhere, but mostly pop culture, my childhood, animated sitcoms, the 1960s & 1970s fashion, kitsch, and drag queens! I was born in 1990, so Y2K fashions were the absolute for me. I also grew up watching To Wong Foo, Practical Magic, Clueless, and Rocky Horror, along with a slew of John Waters films, so one of my dreams is just to make people feel fabulous! I take some inspiration from my husband, my friends, the things we watch or listen to, & my Gen Z teenager. So, I guess the inspiration for each piece comes from something I enjoy or have enjoyed.
SLTV: How would you describe your ideal customer?
KG: My ideal customer is someone who wants to feel absolutely fabulous or just wants to wear something that makes them smile! Someone who loves to show out, whether for drinks with friends, or your morning zoom meeting. Someone who wants to make a statement with their fashion or simply wants to express themselves with cute accessories! Someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously & knows that fashion should be about what makes you feel good. Puff Puff Poms can be and are for everyone to enjoy.
KG: OH YES! I have so much coming up, but I’ll share a little bit about some BIG things coming up for Puff Puff Poms. First: This month I am debuting a brand new Halloween Collection. Some of last year’s favorites will be coming back (and in new colorways), but there’ll also be some brand new designs of some super scary dudes that everyone will recognize. I’m really excited about them and will keep my Instagram updated with the drop date. Next month, I’ll be debuting an animated sitcom collection with faves like King of The Hill, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons. Instagram, Tiktok, & signing up for emails via my website is the best way to stay updated with any new things coming. Lastly, & probably the biggest thing coming for Puff Puff Poms is that I’ll be soon expanding my shop to include handmade apparel and handbags in the next few months. All apparel will be custom sizing to cater to all, but especially the plus-size community as I want to be extremely size inclusive with what I offer. I’ll be starting with dresses and satin-lined bags, then growing from there. I’m honestly so excited!
KG: I hope to bring silliness, fun, and really cute trendy pieces to the fashion community in San Antonio! I want to bring inclusivity and invite collaboration, to create a community that thrives because we hype each other up. I want to bring new ideas inspired by retro fashion, a new way of thinking and doing, and a brand that caters to those who may have felt left out by the fashion industry in the past.
