WHIZZ POP BAM BANG WOOP!
That sums up the last year at Wild Bangarang.
As we hit our THIRD birthday, we wanted to recap on our past year with you, and give you a sneak peak into what's coming up for our fourth year (and yes, it's worth the read)!
Last November, we were busily preparing the designs for our World of Warcraft Legion release, as well as embracing the magic that was our Mighty Morphin Power Rangers fitness collection.
In February, we released our Legion collection, with the nod to our favourite Dark Lady and a few new faces hit the Webstore...
Come March we decided you guys needed monthly lycra brilliance, and we created the Bangarang Box. With goodies, a tee and a pair of limited edition leggings, our boxes started shipping with the LostGirls Tribal design, into Space, Unicorns, Dragons, Mermaids and Gamer awesomeness!
Behind the scenes, however, we decided to change things up massively this year. With our eye for detail and complete nitpicking for quality, we opted to start the lengthy and complicated process of bringing the production of our apparel in-house here in East Sussex for closer monitoring and quality checking. Maintaining our prestigious Made in Britain crown, we took a leap of faith and several large and frightening industrial machines later, we were ready come August to start arranging for in-house production.
The team changed up also this year; we acquired Liz onto the Marketing team and Isana popped back to her homeland of Tenerife (boo!). With great machinery came great skill, and that was in the shape of our lead Machinist Michael, who (as a huge Disney fan) bippity-boppity-hopped on board in October. With Simone leading the Production Department, Zsolt heading up the Design and Adam making sure his team didn't burn the place down, we were good to go full steam on our in-house dream.
While changes have taken place, so have a few niggles we've addressed over the summer. Sizing - we're back to that amazing comfort, stretch and all things glove-fitting. Line-up. Nothing leaves our Production area without a thorough quality check, and all misalignment patterns are sent straight back to their owner and not out to you. Quality. Using one of two new materials we researched thoroughly, our Glorious sheen lycra or our Mighty supportive lycra has given us the freedom to offer you guys what you want.
We've also been mega busy sorting out the BEST year yet for 2018. (Yep, we told you reading this far would be worth it.)
With our Natural History Museum collection launching November 2017, shortly followed by absolute madness in the form of our very first WWE Collection (bodyslam THAT into your baskets!), and onto an explosive start to the new year with a huge gaming Collection (yes, we can't say right this minute but watch out in the next two weeks for this announcement), chased hotly by a brand new World of Warcraft Collection, we aren't even stopping here. Catch your breath...because we are scribbling signatures on an absolute gem of a license that'll get all geeks around the globe a little hot under the collar (cough cough, bear with us, we can't say just yet...but it'll be worth the little wait).
So this is the bit where we insert the MASSIVE AND ENORMOUS THANKS to YOU GUYS, our supporters and followers, for your loyalty and love over the past year. Without you, we wouldn't be here, and the team here know that and couldn't thank-you all enough.
With the birthday festivities in full flow here - CAAAAAKE! - we'd like to wish you an amazing Friday, an amazing weekend, and give you a little something back in the form of a freebie. Chuck £50 of goodies in your basket this weekend, add the BRAND NEW Wild Bangarang Logo Tee (CLICK HERE
) RRP £17, pop FREETEEFRIDAY into the discount box and we'll send you that tee - for free!
Once again, with thanks from all of us here at Wild Bangarang HQ.
ADAM, SIMONE, ZSOLT, LIZ, MICHAEL, Lyra and Skye
