How time flies! Forbidden 13 has reached its second anniversary and we decided to throw a huge party at Rough Trade to celebrate how far we’ve come.

 From humble beginnings, Forbidden 13 started out in 2016 with a vision of bringing high-quality clothes for the tattoo scene.  Taking influence from neo-traditional tattooing and some key trends within the alternative scene, Tom Staniforth has created an iconic fashion range with the support of many young designers and artists. These designs have become since become recognised all across the globe.

Drawing from aspects from neo-traditional tattooing and some key trends within the alternative fashion scene, Tom Staniforth began to create designs that have since become iconic all across the globe.

Now with an online following of over 34,000, we’re planning for an even bigger year. Expect more unique designs, multiple product drops and more opportunities to become a part of our culture.

A big thank you goes out to all the friends we’ve made this year. From all the models who have proudly showcased our clothes, to all of our fans who have continually showed us so much support.

 Our celebration party took place on 1st November at student favourite, Rough Trade. Hundreds gathered to party throughout the night and to come toe-to-toe with other creative enthusiasts. Brandon and Rachel set the scene by opening with some great acoustic hits. Next up, we had Left-Hand-Lane take to the stage to bring us some authentic, indie bangers. Ending on a loud note, we had metal giants Ubiquitous perform a series of mighty, dark tracks. 

Post-hangover paracetamol in hand, we encourage you to keep an eye out on our website and our social media channels. We’ve got some massive things planned for next year so stay tuned, stay connected.
