Today we have a talented young lady making a big impact online. She has recently launched her own clothing brand and is looking to expand her range of products.
Geek Shirts HQ welcomes Riottt Gear, let me get "Shona Ellen", the owner to tell you more.
A bit of background about Riottt Gear:
I make youtube videos that are based on fashion mainly and I have always wanted to create my own brand, so I started Riottt Gear only a few months ago. I had the idea in my head for a long time to make grungey and odd clothing. I want to also branch out into more geek related clothing since I am a huge sic fi and fantasy fan, I have loads of ideas for the shop in regards to geeky fashion!
I saw a gap in the market for cute and quirky clothing and that is where the whole idea came from! For the t-shirts, I came up with the designs and got them printed here in Ireland.
My friend Marie Misfit who is a graphic designer helped me created the logo, I gave her the idea and she formed the image to my liking and it came out exactly how I wanted it!
The name Riottt Gear comes from the term "Riot Grrrl" which was a movement in the mid 1990s for feminist underground punk music. Basically it is a time when girls rebelled and played punk music just as good as the guys. I love the whole movement because it paved the way for many women in the music industry.
Being a Riot Grrrl meant freedom to express yourself and I love that. That is what I base my brand on, women rebelling against the norm and being themselves. But in saying that I also want to branch out and provide clothing for males, a lot of the pieces I am going to sell will be quite unisex.
I have loads of ideas for the future of Riottt Gear, I am currently working on accessories and ideas for more clothing. It is only a small business at the moment but I plan on making it grow bigger and bigger. Riottt Gear is all about embracing the weirdo within.
Thanks so much!

A really cool brand, at the time of writing, there are only 3 designs, however I am sure this will increase over time.
I really like the Riottt Gear Logo Tee featured here today, the logo is so distinctive and unique, it really works as a cool t shirt and a great way to identify this awesome brand.
